I think this is the case of too much beer mixed with stupidity.
Anyhow, was that sealer topical or impergnating? if your stripper didn't take it off try the stripper from HD (Tile Lab) that I found works very well with their sealers. If that doesn't work than you may consider sealing entire patio.

Subject: [sccpartners] Sealing Problem

My clients have a problem with their patio stone. It seems to be some kind of terra cota paver.  When it was installed, the installer finished up by sealing with a home depot product.  What bugs my clients is that when it gets wet, you can see exactly how far the installer over-applied the sealer. (In some areas, 2 inches beyond the grout lines.  Maybe he just happened to have a big brush that day, or maybe too much beer the night before?) You can see this plainly in the attached photos.  I wet the pavers and this becomes readily apparent.  I tried taking it off with dimethyl chloride (Aldon's Premium Stripper) and I had marginal results.  If I can't remedy this problem they will probably tear it out.  Any ideas?
