> As far as the "baby puke" smell of the wrappers, could it be the aftereffects of the ingredients' oxidation or maybe even starting some fermentation, and the wetting just brought the smell out?

That's an idea. There's lactic fermentation going on in sake making,
if I'm not mistaken. Maybe the same bacteria were active on the rice
the wrappers were made of? But, if that's the case, the smell
shouldn't go away...
