On the same page (251) and on page 250 in Wikinson, it is suggested that several galleries (3) under the Step Pyramid Complex could possibly belong to 2nd dynasty royal tombs.

If true this would mean that the superstructures of these tombs were (probably) destroyed by Djoser.

I suppose this is what thirdpal is referring to in the OP.
