Yes it "could" occur for a judge to ID a teams entry. Not by their ID number but by how they build their box if a judge is allowed to see that several times and they build it the same way every time. And if they use a flavor profile no one else is yet using. I can see that happening. But as to comment affecting 24 teams, no cannot occur. All it can affect is the 5 teams and that one tables entry for say Chicken. With each table getting different entries so as not to have same team twice, it cannot occur. Yes it does happen occasionally but not often and due only to odd number of teams to judges and tables.
Now should judge have said anything? I would say no. But humans being humans, we sometimes open mouth before engaging brain. And I think that applies to any and all judges to be limited in what they say to cook teams. Use some common sense.
