If they are identical, then it would seem that the fsck did not trigger
the reallocation. However, what caused the corruption and what caused
the reallocation *may* be something different. They may be two separate
unrelated events. The runtime of the disk is low. So it is likely that
it is the same event. The way to know would be to idenitfy that is if
the sectors that were reallocated to are the same area where fsck found
the corruption.

That's just a bit too much to get into. I would only worry about it if
the reallocated sector count keeps rising.

For always connected disks, smartd is your friend.
