You seem to have resolved it yourself -- -k on the command line
overrides any default -k options in the repository, including -kb for
binary files.  As lots of people keep saying, CVS really wasn't designed
for handling binary files and doesn't do a particularly good job of it. 
If you really want your text files exported with -kk, then you'll have
to do two separate exports, one for the text files and one for the
binary files, and then combine them by hand.
