Why would my sister lie about my mom’s symptoms?

We were in the ER. The doctor asked if my mother had sores in her mouth. I said I didn’t remember her mentioning that. So I asked my mom to confirm. She said she did not have sores in her throat.

My sister says no, that she’s going to answer for her. And I said why would you answer for her if she’s right there? And there’s no language barrier between my mother and the doctor. And my sister says that my mom does have sores in her throat. I said what?! She literally just said that she doesn’t. The doctor looked inside and she didn’t.

I’m still baffled by this exchange. Munchausen by proxy? What the hell was that about?
