I think you are right. The measurements will be off (they have to be). Until they know for sure that the star is under the influence of a neuton star or black hole.
Also if there were 2 stars orbiting each other and you observed the star when it was at 3 o`clock moving toward 12, or 9 o`clock moving toward 6 that would cause a slight red shift/blue shift respectivly.
I don`t know for sure... but you make sense.
