This seems to imply that sdd has a bad sector at 1953519813, but md
seems quite happy to rebuild the array?? Does that mean that, by
chance, it didn't use that bad sector when rebuilding, but tomorrow
it might try writing there, triggering another failure?

Try running "smart" tests on the disks: first one, check if it needs
rebuilding when it fnishes, then the other.

Sorry, can you tell me the command I need. Do I need any particular
software installed?

You need smartmontools installed - then try something like this:

smartctl -a <disk device>
