I could see hidden audio possible but don't know for sure

You can record audio on any magnetic part of the tape so you back in the day you would see an issue where you got antsy and would have false starts and have to rw and re-record - in some cases you would get wonky A-TIME due to this - where the A-TIME would be off the leader of the tape (the first minute or so of "silence" most of us would try record prior to recording a set)

I could see offset audio maybe being recorded if the original record deck was way out of alignment - this would prevent most decks from finding the audio and may require a few FF/RW attempts for other decks to find it. 

I have a tape that was recorded way out of alignment and the 7040 (R700 couldn't find any audio only errors) can find every other frame - I haven't tried the RW/FF to see if it can find the missing ones though.
