Holes in generated heightmap? They don't seem to be effected by patchzone.

Looks like holes indeed. This can be caused by extreme displacement, or other issues. You can try increasing the Displacement Tolerance of the planet. If this is a DEM terrain it may be due to "holes" in the data.

Hmm. I tried tolerance of the planet with a no go. I wonder if the fuzzy zone for the plateau rises needs to be a bit wider. Perhaps there are some near straight cliffs not being read by the heightfield generate?
