No,  the object that flares and moves relative to the stars is 99163.  
The other signal I believe you are referring to in the images is most 
likely a hot pixel as it shows no motion at all over many hours of 
observation, no GEO is that perfect.  Given my experience with the 
imager used this is normal as some hot pixels oscillate in and out of 
perception. It's also worth noting I have done no dark subtraction or 
other manipulation to the images presented short of converting them to 
an animated .gif.

You could also reference the positional obs I reported to be clear on 
what I'm representing given the timestamps of the frames.
