I agree with some of the other folks here, it may just be expansion and contraction of the lumber. It’s especially noticeable on thicker tops. Boards move individually… even if they are part of a tabletop glueup.

Starting with lumber that is kiln dried to a uniform moisture content of 6-8% helps, but I don’t think you can escape it regardless of glue or finish type. It’s just one of those things that proves it’s a real wood top.
