very pedantic detail, but something that kinda bugs me. if the key is F, then its not A#, its Bb

It's odd to me that he didn't come up with a few more songs based around that tuning though... usually when he finds a "non-conventional" instrumentation idea that breaks from his established "normal," it is usually accompanied by a little flurry of songs chasing that newness. ie: raised b, baritone electric, veillette guitar
I think another possibility is he writes these songs in in standard tuning, then when trying to sing it he realized he needs to change the key, thus the strange tuning. Thats how i always assume a song with a capo is written. However i suppose none of us will ever know how he does it, but that may be a possibility as well.

Busted stuff doesn’t make any sense though because the base tuning is still E. Busted Stuff is just odd AF

think of it this way:
- every scale has a single variation on each of the A B C D E F G notes.
- the F major scale will be F G A Bb C D E, so in the context of the F major scale, its the B that has the flat, and the A remains natural. (ie: it would be incorrect to say that the F major scale is F G A A# C D E, even though those two scales sound exactly the same)
