I think you've got that backwards -- the SP has a single-piece flap,
whereas the other 747s, including both -100 and -200, have a triple-
slotted flap design.

Other than the odd flaps on the SP, and the wingtip extension (usually
with winglets) on the -400, all of the 747s have essentially the same
wing as the original 747-100 had.
