That is an interesting point. The shift from TADE LEGEI to hOUTWS EIPEN from Jer 30:17 onwards is so abrupt and striking 
that I can only assume that two different translators were at work, one doing the first half and another the second 

Maybe one was more into literary style than the other?

I am sorry that I haven't yet read your introduction because of very poor internet connection where I am.

Dear Iver,
Since the LXX uses both TADE LEGEI and OUTWS LEGEI (EIPEN) for KO AMAR,
glosses them respectively as "This is what X says" and "Thus says
(said)."  The question is whether in the LXX we are dealing with a free
variant or whether there is more to it. Since the issue is of immediate
relevance for the SO-CALLED two halves of Greek Jeremiah, I deal with
it to some extent in the introduction to that book, posted on the NETS
website http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/nets/edition/ More needs to be done
of course, but a beginning has been made.
