mRNA (messenger RNA) is the "working copy" of gene that the machinery in the cell's cytoplasm uses to direct synthesis of a protein (translation). Thus, if you can get a suitable-looking mRNA into the cytoplasm (e.g. by coating it with NLP), the cell will start translating it. DNA, on the other hand, first needs additional machinery to make an mRNA ...

With these, a short piece of mRNA (the genetic "working instructions" that direct the production of one or more proteins) is injected into a person, ...

While I realize this doesn't answer your question in the narrow way that you frame it ("I do not believe that we can exclude accidental errors as a potential cause" as you put it), I'm offering this as a frame challenge to the theory that accidental i.v. injection is the main reason why STT occurred in those patients. There's a 2020-published study ...
