It is possible to bend an exahust valve. This is commonly done by misshifting and over-reving the motor. e.g.: shifting into 2nd instead of 4th. While not a common thing it has happened before.

not necessarily, it may be too short of a poeriod to bend them all.
to test whether this is a valve at all (as opposed to stuck ring):
run compressionn test.
pour a little oil into the cylinder (a little means about 2-3 ml at most).
re-run compression test.
if it normalizes it is rings. if it does not it is valve.
