Show me your.....Paint Defects?

I just noticed a pretty bad defect in the paint on the top of my trunk lid. I posted about this in the facebook group already but I was wondering if anyone else has had pretty bad paint defects.
It looks like the trunk didn't get enough paint. I'll ask Tesla about it at my service visit on Wednesday.

A bit hard to tell with the reflections on the car. It looks like they could have maybe missed with one of the base coats in a few spots but without seeing it in different light I can't really tell from the pictures. Don't these get painted by robots at the factory?
