I'm not sure I understand what you mean by this; do you mean transfer of
memory from short to long term?  Othewise, I'm not familiar with the concept
of "memory misplacement."

You are talking about "Deja-vu."  Everyone has deja-vu at some time or
another.  Frequent episodes (and what's frequent?  Who knows but perhaps
more than once every other month or so) might suggest some unusual
electrical activity going on in the brain.  Deja-vu is not all that unusual
in people who experience seizures.  NB, that's not to say that they don't
occur in the absence of seizures.
