Suffixes often change the stress in a word. Though I am not a linguist
(yet), I'm pretty sure it isn't sandhi.
It's quite possible that Kayasanoda's more ancient forms had sandhi,
however, since the "hi" suffix probably came from a particle. The meaning
would have changed depending on word order rather than whether it was a
suffix or particle.
