Default Is my Mainboard IMU wonky?

I've just ordered a shell replacement for my Chroma due to a crash that was my fault - but whilst disassembling my Chroma preparing for the new frame I noticed that the IMU on my main board is not level. It sits up at one end?
It's screwed in nice and tight and everything looks good (it's not had any damage from the crash)

Does this look OK??

If you can unscrew the imu and look at the screw bosses, just make sure they didnt crush one end while assembling at the factory.
It does look like one is shorter by design, perhaps the main board sits at a downward angle when the chroma sits on the ground, and the raised end keeps the imu level??
Thats a guess on my part...

The IMU mounting is completely normal. I don't know the reason for it but I do know not to change it. Take care.
