I noticed this very verse after using mod2osis to see how the Tisch 
module handles variants, and it outputs as this:

<w lemma="strong:G4466 lemma.Strong:Ῥαγαῦ lemma.ANLEX:Ῥαγαύ 
variant.Qere:Ῥαγαῦ" morph="robinson:N-PRI">Ραγαῦ</w>

This is strange markup indeed, but I was not able to find any other kind 
of variant markup in that module. I may check the other modules you
