I don't think it looks like he's posting any more but I wonder if it was one of these:
Several of the 331-337 model truck sets had TRANSPORT bricks, but in blue.
This red brick probably is a Samsonite brick that was produced, but not sold in any set. I have seen several groups of bricks in colors that they were never sold in, from former Samsonite LEGO employees.
Here's an example... the 1961-66 ESSO SERVICE brick. It was only sold in USA in blue... however a few were produced in black, and one former Samsonite employee had 31 of these in black that they got from the factory, but never released...
So the red 1x6 TRANSPORT bricks are rare, and not used in any set that I can find... although sometimes some excess LEGO items do show up in Sears Mail Order special sets... but not these red bricks.
Here are the minifig bags for more context/hints. Obviously some castle and space in there as well.
It might be worth contacting the seller to ask about the baseplates - they may have stored them somewhere else and forgotten about them and will look for them and sell them to you if you say you'll buy them?
Otherwise maybe a project to recreate raised baseplates using standard pieces? :)
I got these few things as a promo at an event about 15 years ago. I wanted to double check to be sure they aren't anything particularly special.
Here's a few links to the minifigures that use those torsos, and the critter.

EDIT - after looking more closely, it looks to be a sticker? I still think the above applies.
Then from the pics at https://brickset.com/sets/21006-1 it looks like there isn't a 1x1 plate there?
Maybe someone has played a prank on you and added it at some point to see how long it would take to notice? Any annoying siblings or trickster friends who giggle when they come in the room it's in or when you mention Lego? :)
