No fear, Welshonion. They are definitely English (both the smelly bulbs and the not). Because I am on the edge of a National Nature Reserve and most of my garden is a very active fox run, not to mention home to gadzillian squirrels, I am very conscious not to introduce invasive species of any variety. At least 50% of what I plant ends up digested and who knows where it eventually ends up, if you know what I mean
I do plant in quantities allowing for the theivery of my four-legged neighbours, btw, so I'm pretty laid back about just wandering around the flowerbeds of a morning, popping soil back into the holes dug the night before.
Life is too short to stress over what can't be changed.
