Whoever reproduced the Rehatnamas tampered with them. 

The motive is quite obvious. With Rehatnamas being an authority on Sikh law, way of life, social structures, governence, etc., Scribes who reproduced these Rehatnamas added, edited and removed injunctions as they pleased. This was done to better suit their own needs. To justify (to the Sikh masses), propagate, and authenticate the personal ideals, practices and convictions that the scribe had held onto. 

Another motive was to address issues in the Sikh Panth at that time. 

do nihangs still have the real rehitnama, sau sakhi, etc. or not.

These are some points on which research could be made. How did the rehatnamas change over time, and how the Sikhs were accepting of them. When we read some of the details of the rehatnamas we can see some things which we would be concerned with, but did the Sikhs of those times prefer to accept them, leaving us with the injunctions we have today?

I don't know. There are so many manuscripts around India's libraries.  So possibly.

Looking at the transition from the 19th century to the 20th century, seems like they did accept most of them. As some of the ones we'd call "Un-Gurmat" today, happened to be in practice back then.

Practices  do seem to have changed very significantly. Even the way Sikhs think nowadays and their thoughts of social, and political practices are different.

Yeah, for example, on a social level, the attitude towards Kurehatees, anmatiye, turks, etc. have changed.  On a socio-political level, we've become relaxed on Sikh Nationalism/Identity and maintaining even the fundamental tenets of the Sikh Panth.
