A bit more info :
a) orphan record versions not fixed in any case, they just stay in database
b) hard corrupted records could be fixed by marking as "damaged" but only if -mend was specified.
Such records stay in database and skipped by the engine.
c) orphan pages are fixed if and only if there was no other errors detected and -full was specified
