Why some runs never leave

This question has been bothering me lately. i painted a car the other day, had one run and i sanded it, sanded it, sanded it etc, until i finally hit base.
No that was not my plan.Why is it that a run or sag will show up when you have sanded a panel until it looks completely flat?
You can sand it down, no orange peel, flat white panel. By doing this it should be gone right?
Why can you then buff and it show up in the right angle? it blows my mind.
BUT if you sand too much you hit base and repair entire panel.
Can someone explain this mystery to me.
Someitmes they sand out and are completely gone, other times they "LOOK" sanded out and reappear when you buff the clear.
I dont see a way for someone to know for sure.
I have had this happen over the years, and thought it must be me. is it?
Am i the only one who has ran into this
I have blown through clear hit base, sanded the area well, added more base and then cleared, only for the run to show where it had been even after i had sanded it out to the base.
What is going on with my painting
