Each set would have been dumped separately, so if the missing pixels is in all of them then it would most likely be intentional, or at worst a BTANB.

almost no chance at all of this being a bug

I'm not even sure I'd call it "bug that's not a bug"

it appears to be a simple artistic choice.

Let's push this as a btanb, not even sure what I should look at tbh.
