That is not how I would interpret the text.  More like

The voice SAID said said (kind of like and echoing)
or perhaps
The voice said (I say again) (And AGAIN).

A little hard to decide which given no context.  Metalinguistic means
(to me) that the utterance or portion thereof which is marked is an
explicit or implied place in the sei-tagged selbri.
