if you have the book the u-boat wars 1916-1945 by john terraine it gives a description of the three UBIII types. it did go by tonnage. and they did not standardize the u-boats until late in the war. so you could have two boats made in the same yard and see very different things.
Don't have the book so its down on my wishlist.....
Differences from boatyard to boatyard I think is plausible, but differences between boats from same boatyard doesn't seem to be the "german way" to do things

I have also worked up a set of UCII plans. I will build the UCII first. I want to get the stern correct on the UB-88 for that I need to see a picture?? I will be sending Jeff larue plans this week to scan in and post so that you could download a set. I would like to talk more in depth on this with you if you have time. I am trying to figure out what all the fittings did. feel free to email me at xxxx.edu.
Sorry to say, but I don't have any pictures of the UB82. I have some books about German u boats and I will look if theres better pictures of the UBIII stern.
If possible I would like to ask for the UBIII drawings. I will send you an email later
