There is a very good chance you are correct.

I was working on Oosterdam several years ago when they received an 86 score from USPH.
The Captain and Hotel Manager were very concerned that they might lose their jobs - until the Lead Inspector announced that the score was a retaliation for HAL Senior Management refusing to follow suggestions from USPH Inspectors who were monitoring HAL newbuilds in Italy.

After a very painful conference call with Seattle, all was sorted out.
