But I do get an idea that the sound is also velarized, hence [w] feels righter.
(However, I may be misinterpreting the retroflexion as velarization?)

No, it's certainly bilabial (and rounded).
I recorded a bit, for those who haven't any idea what I'm talking about; not
that I think these weird details are particularly noticeable, but just because I
feel like sharing the sound of my voice... rofl
= Muke says "There is red hair in the drain". (50K wav)
The /r/ at the end of the syllable (in "there" and "hair") is not the same as
the /r/ in question, which is only in onsets(in "red" and "drain".)
