In fact it's the comparatively recent development of these methods and instruments along with the parallel development of mathematical principles that have enabled us to only recently identify these ancient micro anomalies in the first place.
Napoleons men and even Petrie (with the equipment he had to hand, he was a surveyor) wouldn't have had any way of recognising them. Although Petrie did loosely comment on some of them.

As far as I know Chriss Dunn was the first to fully recognise and quantify them. It could probably have been done in the mid, late 19th century but no-one bothered.

Now that this 'inexplicable engineering' has been identified and recognised the next step should be to employ even more modern and precise and expensive methods of measurement.
Egypto-Engineering.
