Then it's most likely you encountered #1, and the disk assigns a new
sector when you attempt to write to the bad sector.

logs don't lie :)
Does the panel handle bad sector cases as well, or does it simply test
whether the disk is accessible?
And if this is a server, you should definitely use RAID1/RAID5.

If the disk is passed to the OS directly (i.e. not managed via
hardware RAID) then you should be able to see disk logs (whether or
not is has experienced bad sector, and which one) using smartctl from
smartmontools package.

you should've test "fcsk -c" before attempting mkfs or dd. It'd do a
read-test, which should catch the bad sector before it gets a new
sector reassigned (after writes from mkfs/dd).
