I just wondered if this the case, because actually the Mp3 format is using a lot of of overdrives which is not possible in a WAV file. So if I e.g. make an audio CD with some Mp3's, will they remain exactly the same or will they differ from what an audio player would decode?

Different mp3 decoders, if they are working correctly, will produce nearly bit identical PCM data, whether you play it directly or first record it to a CD. It is possible, however, for a player to decode to something with a greater dynamic range than 16 bit audio and the rescale it to avoid clipping.
