Normally, I would considered Albatrellus ovinus but according to Steve Trudell, that species apparently does not appear in the PNW.
These yellowed with age and handing.
The white spores were small, ~ 4.0 X 3.0 microns.

and Trudell doesn’t mention odor. He does state that the spores of A. ovinus and A. avellaneus are not amyloid and those of A. subrubescens are. That may make your observation the latter.
The spore data that you note would indicate A. ovinus for my collection as they fall into the small range of that species.
It would be interesting to know the reference for the no PNW ovinus claim.
but I did cut off some edge pieces that were decaying and I think they were emitting some unpleasant molecules.
That was it as far as elaboration on A. ovinus. I did a very brief Google search but didn’t come up with anything substantial.
Interesting comment from Steve there, does he has a source for that I wonder? Was there any odor to them here?
