Okay, on "tiny", files on the partition should have UID 501, GID 82,
umask 000. Is that what actually happens?

No, it's not. At least, not now.

If tiny isn't assigning the right permissions to the VFAT mount, then what permissions is it assigning? And how exactly is this an NFS problem? If the permissions are incorrect on the original VFAT mount, then it's hardly surprising that another host mounting the partition through NFS would see the incorrect permissions.
