  | As the zone ends with AQ, and AQ does not have a "max" ending date, what
  | should Australia/Brisbane fall back to after 1992?

Nothing, it remains on AQ forever.   It is just that AQ has no more
transitions after 1992, so the time just remains stable (Queensland
has no summer time variation normally.)

  | I thought maybe in
  | this instance perhaps "Aus" as it's the one above it, but "Aus" seem to
  | oddly be specific to both World Wars.

In Australia, time is controlled by the states, usually (war time can be
different...) hence different rules for the different states.  AQ represents
Australia Queensland.
