That’s a general misconception .. with careful setup and work a planer, and drum sander can flatten a surface, the hardest to remove is a twist .. but a general bow or cup especially across the width and not the length is pretty easy to remove via planer or drum sander.

When glueing up your panels if you get some bowing, you’ll have to flatten it. You need to make sure that the inside thickness is the same as the outside thickness.

It could be possible that your drum sander isn’t perfectly level and is also causing a divot in your boards.
