For the DreamOn demo discs it's not "since at least Volume 8 (#?? to #??)", it's explicitly only #8 and #18.

Also these discs weren't solely issued in the UK. They came bundled with Dreamcast magazines in France ("Dreamcast: Le Magazine Officiel"), Spain ("Revista Oficial Dreamcast") and Germany ("Dreamcast: Das Offizielle Magazin" and after its discontinuation "Dreamcast Kult") as well. See this site for reference: https://segaretro.org/Dream_On

In France the DreamOn demos 7&8 were issued together on one disc:

In the USA "Sega Swirl" has been part of the magazine volumes #4, #7 and #11:
