I created a document with 4 png images. 100%, 75%, 50% and 25% opacity (in Gimp)

The images showed their 'opacity' in the workong document, but

Export->pdf	All images same opacity, 100% )(Xpdf 3)
Save As->SVG    Inkscape couldn't read the images on reopen
Save As->EPS    When opened in the Gimp, 100% and 75% showed but the 50% and 25% images were not resolved. 

All of this was of curiousity value as I am not sure what it all means. Anyway, it sort of confirms your results
