see if the 2 points were connected, using the resistance function of the multimeter proved that they are connected
I understand you see a short / continuity across a 10k resistor ?
If your board is not powered, and there is no other connection in parallel, there seems to be something wrong, agreed.
However, if there is anything connected in parallel, you might measure less than the 10k value.
An inductance might have a DC resistance of 0 Ohms, e.g. (Not sure if a resistor in parallel would make sense)
