Four-Joker Anomalies


Someone posted this hand on the Modern Mahjongg site saying she had been dealt four jokers and was set at the Charleston.  She had made the bottom quint on the 2021 card.  When I saw it, I realized that it could also be

the sixth hand down in consecutive run.  Luckily, she had made no exposures and declared mahj as the quint, or else would have cheated herself out of 15 points.  

Then, later that day when I was playing, I also had four jokers - 
It made me a little crazy.  I knew I was set, but for what hand?  Did I need:

a flower?

a two or a three?

or a 1 crak?  

I found some others...



and how about...

Is this 222 0000 222 DDDD
or 222 000 222 1111?

and this three-joker anomaly...

I wonder how the bots decide which hands these are????
