It sounds to me like the substitutes were beckoned in and became players at that point. (I think 3.3.1 E applies here, the word "case" is a bit ambiguous, though.)

Having been subbed in, they can then go back out of the game before the TO is over, but the players for whom they substituted cannot go back into the game. Your scorekeeper does know who these subs were supposed to replace, right?
