I think it’s important to remember — for any mode (not just FT8) — that there is always the possibility that you thought you were in the other station’s log when in fact you ultimately weren’t. It’s a relatively uncommon outcome (maybe not quite meriting the “rare” adjective), but it happens. For run-of-the-mill CW or SSB contacts, perhaps the moment of final truth is discovered at the point QSLs are (or aren’t) exchanged — and perhaps that’s true for FT8 QSOs as well. There is no lock tight works-100% failsafe even for controlled-exchange modes.
