Window tint with frameless windows?

From some earlier, I remember that you shouldn't retract windows for couple weeks after tint, and that had some problems with vehicles that have frameless windows as they automatically retract when opening the door. Is that still issue? Is the material improved to overcome that? Or you can tell the car not to retract?

Kinda hard to tell car not to retract, which would mean never opening doors or never closing them (how would you install the tint?).

Not sure how this works on frameless where opening the door retracts the glass like Teslas!
 
Just finished up getting my car tinted, and after getting into the car and driving home I see a noticeable line/markings where the bottom of the window retracts into the door frame. Is that something that dissipates after a few hours/days or does that mean the installer didn't do it correctly?

Hoping it's the former, since the installer has done plenty of Teslas...

By line, you mean untinted area?

I don’t see any bright along the bottom.
