Low vin number for build date?

Hello, I'm looking to purchase my first Tesla, a used Model X, and I have learned a lot on this forum, so thank you to all who come before me! I found one that I like but the vin number seems low for the production date.

From what I can tell, this vin should have been built in 6/16, not 8/16. Is anyone familiar enough with the relationship between vin numbers and delivery dates to tell me if something is wrong here? Were the vin numbers shuffled around at some point? All of the others that I have seen have lined up (fairly well) sequentially with progressive build dates. Maybe it's nothing to be concerned about?

There was a delay in producing certain configs, I think the 5-seaters? So likely an early 2016 order (when VIN was assigned) of one of those configs.
