It may be unrelated to your corruption, problem but I'm curious why you
are specifying a 32MB log section instead of letting mkfs.xfs make the
log size decision.

As others have stated, this operator needs to be flogged and educated.
A computer based video ingestion/playback system with disk storage and a
complex filesystem is not a tape deck. You can't can't simply power it
off as if it were a tape deck.
I would assume based on your description that this is a mobile storage
system, often moved from one location to another, probably in a van, and
this is why the operator simply hits the power switch? Live news crew
type application or similar?
