Stem - says Peugeot embossed in side of stem
The stem is original, as you can see from this catalog scan from 1977, though the model/parts info is nearly identical for the 75-78 years. Note that the colored bands on the decals on the downtube for yours, match these for 1977. Also note that yours appears to be missing the Reynolds 531 decal on the downtube ahead of the shifters.

wheels - hubs say Peugeot Trophe by Maliard , rims Super Champion "Gentleman"
The hubs are original, as this page shows it having Maillard 700 "Peugeot" Trophy. The non-tubular rims are most likely original, though the specs show tubular, as many shops substituted clinchers for them. Also, that RD may be a SX-410 per specs, not SX-610 as you noted(?).

Is this a PX10 variant or have there just been replacement parts installed over time?
It's a genuine PX10LE model, with a few non-original replacement parts: the crankset and pedals, shifters, front derailleur, and saddle. The rest appears original. Yes, non-originality affects the value, but it's basically market-based. In my area (North Florida) for a local sale, it might bring $325, since it needs a full tuneup, tires and tubes, etc. Where you are, maybe $425-450, since it's an average-sized frame and could suit more buyers.
