Personally the target should be repositioned and reshot by the shooter who, like you say, clearly hit the paddle but at an angle which resulted in a insufficient strike to fully engage the mechanism to cause the paddle to fall, therefore the target malfunctioned and therefore a marshal if called should sort the target and the shot be taken again.

At the end of the day the targets are there to be hit, not missed

But as I say, technically, there is no reference to target placement in relation to the firing line

Here in Portugal we have the 5 degree rule and we can call a Marshal to correct it but only before we shoot and not after.
