Actually, if there are plugins in the chain pre-PT, it's possible to clip them severely while also lowering the overall level that hits PT. When this happens, the clipping indicators will come on and stay on in the chain with the plugins, but not on the "receiving" PT track. The resulting waveforms will look totally fine, even though the audio isn't.
