I agree with you!
Please use the link above to hear the pronunciation of the verb: to see. It would become much clearer than the present speaker presenting this sentence. This reminds me of a situation of a Spanish-speaking island where R sometimes is pronounced as an L... (not by all of them) You get used to it after a while.
So I used the link provided above and the the female speaker said a more intelligible sound like ro'e, ro'e.....then, on more examples another speaker said it with an almost "g": go'e sound.
This variation of the R sound in present examples could possibly be attributed to the influx of Jews from different geographical areas who were exposed themselves to the sounds of the main dominant languages of the land they lived in. Fascinating!
