I can confirm that if a person does not remove old output but changes
input to the inline code segment then the exported file will have both
the correct output plus the (old) incorrect output.  My strategy to
avoid this is use C-c C-c sparingly just to check whether the output
is as expected, then always erase output.  If I am going to use an org
file with C-c C-c a lot (for a lecture, say), then I keep a copy for
exporting clean and separate from the one I am going to do a lot of
C-c C-c'ing with.  YMMV.

I think you can fix this with inline code-segment header arguments
which will override buffer-wide or system wide settings.  So, for
example, you could do

src_R[:results raw]{2 + 2}

which will return 4 and not =4=.

I hope this helps,
