I don’t use the wider mortise settings unless I’m just using the dominos for vertical alignment. Normally I’ll use a block plane or a sanding block to remove the ridges on the sides of the dominos before inserting them into the mortise. That allows just enough room to offset potential problems with misalignment.

As far as adjusting the plastic plate goes, I have no idea if it’s common or not. I adjusted the one I use and that is it. I don’t remember if it needed adjusting but I’m used to tweaking the settings of new tools so I tend to do it out of habit even when I get a high quality tool.
