Wrong clone design in Revenge of the Sith?

I am new to this site and really enjoying the work put into this place!
I have a very odd request. I was informed that there was a clone trooper with incorrect markings in the background of the scene where Commander Cody picks up Obi-Wan’s lightsaber. The scene was only in the theatrical version, according to my source, and was edited to be the correct trooper for the DVD release.

I have no real information beyond that, though the clone MAY be red instead of the correct 212th orange. but I am hoping that someone with the workprint or other theatrical version could check into that for me! I have gone over many of these forums, but couldn’t find an actual way to view those clips myself.

Also, as a general discussion point, I am wondering if anyone has spotted other clones with unique or incorrect armor markings? It makes me wonder if this may not have been the only clone removed/edited.

Thank you for any help you all can offer!

So it was a Phase II Clonetrooper with that was red instead of orange? And this was only in the theatrical version?

I don’t have a 35mm copy of the film, but quite frankly this sounds made up.

35mm scans of the movie exist, I just checked my copy, this is false.
