On references in printed science journals

I recently read paper in scientific journal, which cites my publication, but does not have all authors in references. I understand when pre-print might have a mistake - it happens. But if a printed journal does not check names of all authors in references before printing, what else can they miss? Example publication: Link 1 Missed one author #1 (IEEE): Link 2 Author name misspelled #2 (Taylor): Link 3 Another author missed #3 (Springer): Link 4 I wonder if at least online versions could be fixed. What is printed is already printed - fine, but online versions should not take much time to be fixed. I informed one of the journals just out of curiosity what they do. It has been quiet with no response yet.
