I get what you're saying, but I still think if the ship was meant to have impulse engines on the pylons they would have been included in that scene since they took the time to add blue nacelle lighting.
By not having it on the pylons I would argue that they are indeed supposed to be on the saucer and the special effects guys figured no one will notice some red on the saucer that is partially blocked by these pylons. I'm reaching now, aren't I?
