I do not have a good understanding of how the trial balance report works,
but it does look at security prices in the GnuCash price database.  That is
over my pay grade.
If you have been tracking that stock price in GnuCash, that can do funny
things to the way the report assigns values to the stock at various times.
In fact, I have found that there are ways to fill the price database with
bad numbers so it would not hurt to look at what is in your price

I also do not use scrubbing, so I cannot comment there either.
