Yup.

But a LOT of Radon is not without interesting "side-effects", such as
much easier ionization due to the alpha radiation.

To get to relevant He levels via the Radon route, we are talking
deep unventilated mineshaft kind of concentrations...

Hydrogen is a lot more plausible in my view.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
