That is less likely. For end repair (filling in 5 overhang and removing 3 overhang) two enzymatic activities are required so it is less likely to add 3 A while another enzyme is removing 3 overhangs. This can be tested by omitting incubation at 65C and immediately cleaning up end repair reaction followed by adapter ligation. Lack of 3 A should significantly reduce ligation efficiency.
