The measure word 个 in èrshí gè nánrén or èrshí ge nánrén 上 as in zǎoshang or zǎoshàng 候 as in shénme shíhou or shénme shíhòu 边 as in shàngbian or shàngbiān As you can see, it has something to do with optionally using a neutral tone in place of another tone.

Representing tone-changes triggered by neighboring tones is pretty consistent actually. I believe the standard is to write the underlying "original" tone. The discrepancies I'm referring to are not triggered by context; they are dialectal (I think.)

comment Why do Chinese “extend” the last word when speaking?
Are you sure these are Mandarin speakers? I've noticed elongated sentence-final syllables in Cantonese speakers. Apparently elongating the final syllable and higher intonation overall is characteristic of questions in Cantonese. link
