Well, we do see unauthorized footnotes in various prints. Even in the ones from the U.S. Government. Here's the thing. Even if you contact the National Archives regarding footnotes that have no authority you'll find that 1 - they have no means of correcting the distortions and 2 - they have not documented the process in which certain footnotes were inserted and published in their versions of the Constitution. So since there is no authority for those footnotes, they shouldn't be considered part of the Constitution. Footnotes are very, very important because the can change meaning.
This is a very good question that you ask, though. And it's why the Constitution not only should be read, but read often in order to know these unauthorized footnotes. They certainly aren't valid.
