... We use precise HARPS radial velocities to search for planets, but none were detected. ...

Neutron capture elements... In a main sequence star? O_o

I think I missed something on my readings about nucleosynthesis and stellar evolution...

Planet detection limit is about ~10 Earth masses at 1 day, so definitely room for a set of low-mass planets there. Edge-on Jupiter-clones seem to be ruled out.

Enhancement in refractory elements relative to the Sun might mean more planetary material fell into it?
