After transcoding you always should rebuild those seektables. I have a 
default userjob set: 
mythcommflag --rebuild %FILE% -V %VERBOSELEVEL% 
from the time of my PVR500 that needed a rebuild on any recording.

How did you remove the original file? 
I'm sat in a car-park with a very rusty memory, so I'm happy to be told I'm wrong, but I'm fairly certain that on the odd occasion I've moved/disconnected a disk and then added it back, myth hasn't had to refetch the metadata - meaning it doesn't automatically 'forget' a video if the file is absent during a scan, in case it's a temporary absence. So if you did a filesystem delete, then what you experienced is by design. 
Removing it via mythvideo is probably a more complete removal of both file and associated data. If that's what you did anyways, then I'd be a bit thrown too!
