The only reason to have the fence angled away is to temporarily see if the marks go away. Otherwise dead straight is best, though err on the side of angled away instead of angled towards the blade for safety sake. I don’t think that a slight bevel to the blade would cause that. I think you should just get a nice beveled cut.

I suppose that if the throat plate isn’t level that could cause a problem like this? If the rear side towards the blade is slightly higher, that might cause something like that, especially if one or two teeth stick out slightly more than the others. Just speculating. Usually when I see something like that it is because I screwed up when finishing the cut.

If nothing mentioned so far helps, I would just call them and see what they say.
