I notice with this speaker (especially on the slow setting) that after words ending in vowels she adds an almost imperceptible 'm'-like nasal sound, as though she's saying "el are un numem". Is this a common trait in native speakers, or a specific affectation, or a regionalism? Have I discovered the "Transylvanian phantom M"?

I've seen this issue with many recordings. It may be a recording issue like the pronunciation being cut too early making it sound like that.
