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?

Correct, the scorer has no idea who the two players were replacing so this would be tough to figure out. I think I would just let it go and let the same five return to the floor just like this crew did. If you try and sort it out it may get pretty crazy.
