Even if there were in theory Moral Rights in corrigenda from referees
(which I very much doubt), custom and practice tells us there are none -
for if there were, then those referees would be claiming them already. The
names of the referees are usually unknown to the author, so how could a
referee assert moral rights without his/her identity being revealed?

In a nutshell, anonymous refereeing and moral rights are incompatible with
one another.
