It might... if the meshes are not well-behaving, for instance if the
normals of each mesh face are not /all/ consistently pointing outwards,
or if the mesh is not 'closed'. Mesh objects (especially when generated
by external programs and not POV-Ray) are notorious.
I would suggest to convert your meshes with Poseray to mesh2 objects
which are much better behaving than mesh objects. I tried to upload your
file as a whole into Poseray but it appears to be too big for the
program, so upload chunks of meshes separately. I am not sure if you can
put them together again afterwards as it is bad practice to edit mesh2
files manually, but you can put them in a union at least.
