Car misaligned and steers to right... was told it'll be fixed with firmware??

Just took my model 3 in for service because the car was steering to the right when my hands were off the wheel. After picking up my car I was told this is a "common problem" with model 3s and will be addressed with a firmware update.

How common is this?? Work service report shows they did try to align it and it's "within their limits" and now it's worse than before I took it in.

Firmware?? Common Problem?? Anyone with experience think there's a bigger underlying problem?

I appreciate any help or insight. Thanks!

I have a Model 3 on order but no Model 3 hands on experience yet.
However, knowing a little about auto mechanics, I cannot imagine how a software fix could correct what is in any other car a purely mechanical linkage adjustment of the wheel steering and suspension system.
