Interior trim panel misalignment

A question for 2022 MY owner's. I took delivery of a MY-LR last week and the only issues I noted were a couple of very small paint chips on the exterior and two cases of interior trim panel misalignment. This latter issue is at the same location on both sides with the panels just to rear of the back doors and just beyond both the right and left ends of the rear seat backs. See the pics attached. Given it is on both sides of my new MY I suspect I'm not the only one to have this issue. Do any other owners of 2022 MYs have this same issue?

I have a 2020 MYLR and the same exact issue exists with mine. I took it apart to see if I can make it fit better but the panels/clips are poorly designed in the first place to provide a clean fit. There's literally an empty bin space behind the panel. I almost thought about putting some sound insulation in there but decided I'd just live with the gap. :(
