Just a bunch of questions and statements. I don't have a solution, but maybe things to think about:

You shouldn't have to worry about field settings or interlace, etc… That doesn't apply here.

Are you taking into consideration that :00 of each second counts as a frame (technically frame 1, but timecode wise frame 00)? Maybe the VFX house didn't export the last frame.

Do the clips have timecode on them? I'm talking metadata TIMECODE, not just time. Compressor could be adding timecode to your clips, correcting some sort of corruption when shots are imported.

How does After Effects see the raw clips compared to the converted clips? To me, After Effects always seems to interpret footage 100% correctly when other programs don't.

I had this problem a few years ago when I was capturing video from an HDCAM-SR deck. My setting was accidentally set to 1080p, not 1080psf. Not sure this is applicable to you though...
