You are correct.  No one is to alter the path other than adding the q construct on packets gated to APRS-IS.  I just did a packet lookup on W3HZU and the only thing I found was from 31 days ago so I haven't a clue what software they are using (Keystone VHF Club, according to QRZ).  I wonder if someone was replaying a log?...
