Default Need some info: Re-arrest/72hour -not me-

I won't go into detail but I need some help from pros to understand the procedure itself. No it isnt me, it isn't even someone I know. I am helping a friend and her questions confused me.

After the end of a 72 hour period with no charges filed, no arraignment, the DA has no record in their computer, she is in county jail, the city police that conducted the arrest have the record. Contact with the county jail resulted in them saying that she is still being held and was "rearrested" at 11:00pm at night. She has not even been contacted by anyone in the jail since her initial processing. Is this some kind of computer action that is used to extend the 72 hour window?

I find this very confusing. Can you just do an electronic re-arrest to extend the time?
We give them happiness and they give us authority.
You assuage their conscience.
They give us their freedom.
