They don't publish anything on that.

The LC tanks that are selected with jumpers appear to be constructed
of ordinary parts with 10% or 20% tolerance.  The effect of
those could be modeled w.r.t. amplitude and phase shift.
I suspect this is the main source of any amplitude and phase shifts.
I can't remember if the FET amplifier has negative feedback.
If not, its gain would vary with FET transconductance, which is
poorly controlled in most cases.
