Posting this in case it helps someone else. The problem is not a missing tag, but an extra tag.

Find the TST # that is shown in the Trados error (you may have to extend the comment bar). This is the comment reference number.

Display all tags and look at the text where the comments are inserted. Find the "COMMENTREFERENCESTART TST =" that matches the TST in your error code.

There is a "COMMENTREFERNCESTART" tag, not in the comment, but in the place where the comment is supposed to be inserted into the text.

If you have a "Fuzzy match" with your TM and you edit that text, sometimes this "COMMENTREFERENCESTART" tag gets duplicated (so Trados can't find the comment end tag that corresponds to that extra comment tag). Deleting the duplicate tag seemed to solve the problem for me.
