That could be the case here, but there is no where near enough information in the OP to know.
Probably enough info to say that this almost certainly was NOT the case-
1. If he successfully appealed due to improper scores entered, he would still be playing 4.0. I am sure the OP would be more surprised about him playing 4.0 after a DQ, than anything else.
2. If he successfully appealed all his scores that got counted as losses would be reversed.
3. DQ reversal due to improper score entry is probably rare. I have never heard of it actually happening to anybody who was DQ'ed.
