I think the answer lies in the original comment from Paul [1]

"This is somewhat more aggressive than the rebuild will be,"

As far as I can tell the error points sometimes get displayed where there 
are what the JOSM  relicencing plugin calls "possible data loss".

As such the error points produced by Paul, and the two maps built upon that 
data are an indication of possible problems, not a 100% definite statement 
of actual problems.

Furthermore, as I understand it, none of the tools which find "dirty" ways 
and nodes are actually using the same logic as the actual rebuild will use, 
so its impossible to get a 100% accurate picture of what will happen.
