There is a very noticeable plateau in the light curve as the star is fading. Can you comment on why this effect occurs?

I am no expert on this but suspect that it may be due to the star being multi-periodic i.e. having more than one period of oscillation which interferes with the main period. This effect is more apparent in the curve I am about to post V799 Aur.
