I would put a comment in the l. syn. field rather than make parenthetical remarks.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Errors in books

I have been reading a book that has a lot of errors. If I scan it, it's going to look atrocious.

When you quote a source that has errors, you put [sic] after the error to show it was an error in the source and not in your quoting.

Would it be permissible to put [sic] after the errors so that readers know it wasn't a poor scan?
