Hum maybe, but in 2 weeks i have put in something like 16 oz of water, that is like a full radiator worth of bubbles.
The Water path through all the radiators is always flowing up, so bubbles should naturally come out pretty easily.

try a couple drop of UV dye in the loop, and look with a UV flashlight?

From personal experience if you have a slow leak near enough to your fans it'll evaporate too fast for you to ever be able to feel the moisture. But I agree that it could just be bleeding especially if the system is 24/7 so the bubbles don't have a chance to settle.

Just the standard advice of tightly wrapping a paper towel around each fitting/connection. Paper towels go a bit wonky after getting even the tiniest bit wet bonus if you get the blue shop towels since the blue tends to turn more pink/purply. On a big system like this every single one might not be feasible so go with the ones that are harder to visibly check first.
