Can I ask why it doesn't return the same snapshot ID each time?
Surely it can't change since you can only export the snapshot of a
serializable or repeatable read transaction?  A "SELECT
count(pg_export_snapshot()) FROM generate_series(1,10000000);" would
quickly bork the pg_snapshots directory which any user can run.
