It is unique.

Quoting form JESD216 rev D, section "6.3.3 Definition of Parameter ID Field":
"The original JESD216 specification used only a one byte ID field to identify
the parameter table owner.
 JESD216 revision A expanded the ID field to two bytes, MSB and LSB, because a
single byte is
 insufficient to uniquely identify all manufacturers ( vendors). The original
single byte parameter ID is
 now referred to as the parameter ID LSB."

In the Microchip's case, 01h is the Parameter ID MSB (respects the 01h-7fh
interval) and bfh is the Parameter ID LSB (has odd parity, which is correct).
Now I'm looking in the JEP106AZ standard (Standard Manufacturer’s
Identification Code): 01h MSB indicates the bank number (one), and bfh LSB
indicates the Manufacturer Identification code (which is bfh for SST).
