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?

I agree with stardestroyer001, it makes perfect sense, why bother putting in details that aren't going to be seen or are going to be vastly obscured. I mean after all the VFX at the time of this movie weren't created with the same super-high fidelity that modern HD movies are, they would have been much more limited on how much they could cram on the screen at once.
