Could be due to multiple things.

Do Memento patched images and images that just have manually added DVD-V data also work with ESR? or do they specifically need the ESR sector data that is made with the ESR patchers?]
It adds DVDV/patches UDF-FS and adds the +NSR-Sector.
Normal manually patched DVDs with VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS shouldn't work, since all ESR-Versions check for the +NSR-Sector thought, to verify that it is an ESR/Memento-Disc and not a Video-DVD.
Anyway,... I guess the ESR-MC-Version,or ESR-GUI-Function for starting an ELF might help and should enable you to start those patched DVDs manually with uLE.
The DVD-V-Data simply means, patching the UDF-Descriptor with the additional Video-DVD-Entrys, means there is nothing changed except of the UDF-Index which location doesn't change.
also does the LBA of the game files move when the image is patched or does it always add the ESR sector / DVD-V data at the end of the disc so as not to interfere?
The +NSR-Sector is patched to the beginning of a PS2-Disc, where normally never is any data stored.
