I also doubt whether the posthumous preservation of one's body has anything to do with his sanctity.

I'm fairly sure that there have been Buddhist monks who are similarly preserved without any preparation.  These are called miracles as well.  I think that every once and awhile a body may be naturally perserved in an extraordinary way merely due to a series of physical factors coming together just perfectly in one's burial place.
I agree, and I can understand mummification, but how do physical factors affect the reported suppleness of the bodies? I'm at a loss for that one.
