As of the April 2010 releases of Spotify they support "automatic track replacement":

Automatic track replacement: Spotify will now automatically try to find a replacement for any track you can’t play. So if a friend in another country sends you a playlist with tracks you can’t play or a local file, we’ll search our catalogue and link to a playable track when possible. A ‘link’ icon next to the track name represents replaced tracks.

Currently, Mopidy cannot play these tracks and just prints e.g.:

WARNING  Play spotify:track:6R81HhHxetvaWqQoM9K4Ll failed: The track cannot be played

As far as I can see from the API docs, libspotify can tell us that this is a autolinked to another track:

This can be implemented by turning on autolinking in each libspotify playlist as it is loaded. See for details.
