I also have this same problem with the same information about pre and post roll for episodes. The extra 30 seconds is only added to the recording(s) with a recording happening on the same channel immediately afterwards.  

I do notice in the database table recorded that the start time is not modified for the episode, and 30 seconds is added to the ending time for the episode being recorded.

Something in the scheduler is adding it, and I haven’t dug into the code to figure it out. I have looked at the code, and have not seen any comments in it that would give a clue what is going on.
