But shouldn't the mp3 be encoded in a particular way to make gapless
playback work?

AFAIK, the mp3 format has a fixed frame size, the last frame is always
only partially filled and so any mp3 track contains some silence at the end.

And how does Aqualung know if two tracks were meant to be played without
any gap?

In theory, the cleanest solution could be to use a CD ripper that writes
some sort of playlist file that the player can read to know which tracks
should be played without gaps and which is the duration of the gap when
it is meant to be there (gaps between tracks on a cd can be != 2secs).
