Loop Playback NOT working in Some SFZ Files!

I have downloaded some Orchestra packs in SFZ Format, such as Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra, Versilian Studios Chamber Orchestra, No Budget Orchestra, and Virtual Playing Orchestra.

The one and only problem with some of these SFZs is because it doesn't seem to have a Loop Playback function. Sonatina and VSCO 2 CE are okay because I didn't want them to be looped when they sound very beautiful, but No Budget and Virtual Playing, well... I don't know what I'm saying. These SFZs have loop playbacks, but all of these samples are NOT really loopable. They just stop. I mean, the samples are looped, but NOT completely.
Is there anyway to fix this in Version 2.1 or in a future version of MuseScore?

Here are the links to these patches to see if you can figure out this issue.

FYI, the idea of "patch (code needs review" is that you personally are providing the patch to 8fix* the problem, and you need other developers to review your patch. If you are simply reporting a problem, use "Active" for the status. "Needs info" - which I have changed this to - is when the developers need additional information in order to understand the problem, and that usually consists of a sample score and precise steps to reproduce the problem.

But see also #114681: Zerberus Loop support! - it appears this was addressed for both master and at least some version of the 2.x code (2.0.4 branch), and according to the 2.1 release notes, this change was incorporated into 2.1. So in theory this should work. I don't know about this to know how to test or verify though. So if you can provide precise steps to reproduce a problem, I can try to check. But maybe someone else who knows more about this can comment?
