Hi Doug,
I have never seen it take off stain so cleanly unless there was glue on the surface and the stain would not adhere. But, this would be evident as soon as you wiped the stain.
Did you apply the stain and then wipe it after about 15 minutes? Was there any clean areas like that after the wiping?

I’d sand it and stain that area again and wipe it to make sure it took. Wait a day and recoat it with the poly.
You’ll be fine!!

ps I take it you are not talking about the streaking in the top that is caused by the tight and loose side of the veneer or boards absorbing stain differently.
