Would any of  the six different variants of YHWH found in the Leningrad
Codex,
be considered "obvious errors".

Has anyone ever done a detailed study of what each of these six variants
of YHWH were meant to indicate
to the Hebrew reader?  

It appears that one variant would clearly indicate that the Hebrew reader
should read "Elohiym",
as that particular variant has the precise same vowel points as does
"Elohiym",
and appears to be an accurate example of Qere Perptuum.

However the variant that many scholars believe was meant to indicate to
the Hebrew reader, 
that he or she was to read "Adonay or Adonai" , 
does not have the precise same vowel points as does "Adonay or Adonai" 

This particular variant does not seem to be an accurate example of Qere
Perpeuum.

Does it matter?
