When reviewing reopen votes, I was given this question as a review audit. I commented, nonsensically, that I didn't understand why the question was closed as primarily-opinion based, as that's what the review audit showed the close reason as. I deleted the comment, but nonetheless, I shouldn't have been allowed to comment while being misinformed.

When we're "lying" to users about the status of a question in a review audit, comments should either be disallowed or not copied over to the question itself.

    It seems they changed the commenting-on-audit behavior. It used to be that clicking “Add comment” failed review audit for "known-good" posts, with no comment being actually posted. Apparently, in your case the comment got posted. I'd guess this is a bug.
