Default Bushings/Bearings bad on 13' XC

So I was having a new tire put on yesterday, they wrapped everything up came and got me and wanted to show me something. I'm thinking this is one of those "O shit" moments. They proceeded to demonstrate what was called excessive slop in the swing arm play due to what they said was bad bushings/bearings in the rocker that I have circled in the picture attached. Luckily I have until July before my ext. warranty runs out, but am very curious if anyone else has run across this?

That happened to me also, but I recall someone here had a dealer look at theirs. They checked all of the bikes in the show room and they all had it. They concluded they are made that way. If my memory is correct.
