Do the pages seem a different texture than the others? Sometimes you won't see a water mark but the texture is stiffer, whcih indicates it had contact with water.

If you think it has water damage, then it is a RWAP.

Pages can be wavy for other reasons, though, I've seen some where the binding was just tight and it was making the pages wavy. Have also seen some books wavy from humidity. Have also seen where cheaper paper makes "fingerprints" marks as the book is being read. All of those are still postable conditions.
