Funnily, you posted a SMART report that shows the same values as before.
A self-test that ended with a read failure. One sector that the drive has
failed to reallocate/replace. Two sectors that have not been
reallocated/replaced yet. Four reallocated sectors is not much of a
threat, but you still need to observe that this value doesn't increase
steadily.

To understand why a component raised the alarm you need to examine what
values it looked at.
