He also indicates that the computer in question is a 9825A without any ROM cartridges.

However, the behavior of trying to load smth from a tape, reminds me of the autostart facility of the I/O ROM of the 9825 (9825 I/O ROM manual, page 4-3):

If a tape cartridge is installed when the computer is switched on,
it automatically executes a load program 0 ( ldp0) statement from
track 0.

The I/O ROM is normally not present in an 9825A unless the appropriate drawer is in place. However, if the 9825A has been upgraded, it may contain built-in ROMs.

This should be indicated in the inside cover of the printer paper bin.
