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.
