Fabrication will be noticed falling away <-- if that is not seen you are not supposed to know about the impermanence, suffering, not self which is about not being able to find satisfaction etc.
It is the non-occurrence of consciousness, disruption in mind stream/life continuum and counterpart sign. Counterpart sign denotes the nearness of jhana.
If falling off the fabrication is noticed(by you) it means the mind goes for the nibbana, you see it occurs as it going for the nibbana and second thing what occurs to you is that the fabrications are ceased. Nibbana per se isn't an object, it is like fire goes out, no more fire.
But if concentration is not strong enough, but you still notice, then the mind will re-enter life continuum which is access concentration and from there can be attained concentration.
I think you need make difference between your regular thoughts and concentration and insight development. Vissudhimagga says that it is rare(very difficult) if one reach from access-concentration to the concentration in same session.
