If the builders were so interested in keeping the entrance secret at any time after construction, they would have finished the job by loading the entrance and at least the upper aspect of the Descending Passage with limestone blocks that are similar to all the other core blocks, and then covered the outer surface seamlessly with the same Tura casing stones that were used on the rest of the thing. It then would be virtually impossible to discern any entrance, even with today's imaging methods.
I find the entire notion that an allegedly hidden main entrance, the Granite Plug blocks at the AP/DP junction, the alleged granite portcullis blocks in the Antechamber, or an allegedly faux DP/SC configuration (to dissuade robbers from probing any further), were incorporated to serve any kind of deliberate "security mechanisms" is completely implausible. Far too many logical flaws to be credible.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
