This may not be the biggest deal -- lots of people have printed out this
book and don't appear to have had this problem. But it bothers me because I
don't understand how these images could be showing up correctly at every
stage but then not printing out correctly, even if this engineer does have
some weird print settings. Does anyone have any ideas?

You haven't told us what printer the engineer used, but I'd guess it was the old Xerox office printer that the engineering department hung onto after all the other departmental printers were replaced with newer models. If that's the case, there's not much you can do about it. I suppose that if you really wanted to bulletproof the document against this eventuality, you could re-render all of your visio drawings as raster images (TIFFs, preferably), and use those instead of the vector drawings in the document. But that would be a lot of work to solve what seems like a minor glitch.
