Gillette adjustables and blade gap

At 2:50 in, the gentleman in this video states that with a Gillette adjustable, a fatboy in this case, the blade gap will be different on both sides of the razor on a setting higher or lower than 5. Has anyone found this to be the case?

I had 3 Fatties, and 3 slims. I wouldn't say they varied significantly from side to side. Any TTO razor, if knocked around, will get out of whack. While I straightened most of those adjustables to some extent, I wouldn't agree that "most vary from side to side".
Hey, that's NEWMAN!

Gap should be the same on both sides, regardless of adjustment point. If not, head is not square to the handle.
I have a Slim and a Black Beauty and never noted anything like that.

That Fatboy probably has some mechanical problem, for sure.
