I agree, if you don't look closely you could assume, as I always did, that Bingley did *not* notice anything wrong, but this is one of those passages in P&P (I can think of at least 2 others) where IMO JA wrote so "doubtfully" not because the conclusion was wrong but because the clues were so subtle. She was writing from the POV of the onlooker who was doubtful of her own conclusions, but came to the correct ones anyway, IMO.
