There are various possibilities here.

1. The engineers cannot write. You take their stuff, fix it, and they bless it. That's fine. That's what tech writers do.

2. Management does not like the test results. They have you rewrite it to their expectations. The engineers do not see it, and it instead goes to the customers or the government inspectors. When ugly material hits the rotating blades, you are guilty.
