I very much did read what you said, did you?
I interpret what you wrote as saying that ALL palindromic methods give pb lead ends, BECAUSE they have the correct bells swapping at the half lead. This should be IF they have the correct bells swapping at the half lead THEN they will give pb lead ends.
I think there's a similar confusion RE your twin-hunt triples.
