Head switching was sometimes visible in old analog recording like VHS and U-Matic. Whatever you're seeing is not head switching as you say it's only on footage from 25fps HDV (PAL refers to SD).

It is possible that whatever you're seeing will not be displayed in correctly broadcasted/projected overscan situations, but I don't know exactly what you're seeing.

It's possible that these HDV clips have not been converted or scaled correctly to the rest of your project which I'm assuming is not HDV frame size.

Have you had the chance to view what you're seeing as problematic on a broadcast monitor yet? If not, what program are you viewing this through that is creating the worry? - that could make a difference as different software viewers have different aperture settings. It's most likely something that will not come through in proper scan, but I can't say for sure. Posting a screen shot of what you are seeing would be most helpful.
