Thanks for the answer. I should have phrased my question more
carefully. I was already aware of the comment by Robert Wilson, I was
asking for references for that comment, i.e. where is it proven that
the first differences of a_n are always 2 or 3. Since then, I found the
following, that contains a proof apparently by Tomas Schonbek:

Thanks for the pointer. This question turns out to be complicated
enough to be assigned for a mini-project. In that case I will make
sure to have the students properly cite the OEIS.
Actually, I am using the OIES for an (unrelated) paper I am writing and
I will make sure to cite the relevant sequences.
Best,
Nikos
