Actually, JPAN's engine removes that part completely, you can see this because the player faces up at the beginning of a regular FR ROM whereas they face down in a patched version. The reason behind this is because the direction the player faces is determined by a level script in the player's room which is only activated when they first enter/ spawn there. But since all scripts are cleared in the patch it was replaced with 0xFF bytes, leading to the error encountered.
Anyway, this is a pretty helpful/ simple tutorial to get around the problems associated with SMCA and its even better now that people will be able to know at a glance how to change that elusive Y-coordinate :P
