Programming Skills - Cubes in Bot

I did see in the rules that during the programming skills challenge if there are cubes in the robot when the robot is being repositioned by the team them the cubes must be removed and placed off the field. But what if the cubes in the robot are clearly in the robot which is in the scoring zone. Could the cubes just be removed from the robot and placed in the scoring zone? Please advise. Thank you.

As stated in <PSC1b>, quoted below, any Scoring Objects being possessed by a Robot while being handled will be removed from the playing field. They will not be placed in the Scoring Zone.
