I've seen that happen, too. If you're trying to sync to audio, there are a few other things I'd recommend you can try:

Select your audio layer, and tap LL -- the 'L' key twice -- to reveal its waveform. You can often use this for visually identifying beats and hits.

To scrub audio in AE, hold down Cmd and Opt on a Mac (Ctrl and Alt on Windows) while dragging the CTI around the timeline. To scrub audio and video together, hold Cmd on a Mac (or Ctrl on Windows) while dragging the CTI.
