okay, so our comps spent a ton of time finding triplets, but I'm new here, and I found something that seemed to be mentioned nowhere, and the program didn't seem to catch onto it, either. it was strange.

are quadruplets a thing?

If there were a fourth peak above the triplet threshold with the correct spacing, the program would detect a second triplet. That is, the first through third peaks would be one triplet while the second through fourth would be another.

it seems to be above the threshold, so I could only guess that it was slightly off, right?

Yes, it looks like that fourth peak is too soon.
