the wording of your question is confusing, but if you are asking what I think you're asking, then, yes, I believe that one of the specific purposes of an unrecorded "pre-interview" is to make sure that the interviewee says what the cops want him to say, including any memories they want to plant or manipulate, or help him construct an entirely false story.

However, the early recorded Jay interviews when his story was changing were at a time when Adnan was not a target of their investigation, and, indeed, Jay had made himself a suspect.

They just hadn't gotten to the point of "setting up" their best interview yet.
