Four wheel alignment

I was concerned about the wheel alignment on my new 2014 Pat FDII (2662 miles). I took it in for a computer alignment and indeed, it was quite off, front and rear. The mechanic had to oblong an adjustment space for front camber in order to complete the adjustments.

I had heard and read that alignment checks are not a priority either from the factory or at the dealer and that alignment of newly delivered vehicles may suffer depending on how the vehicle is secured, tied down, etc. for transport.

My wife has a 2014 Pat FDI and at 5000 miles I took it in for rotation and alignment. Her alignment was off as well.

The alignment print out for both our Jeeps indicated "Jeep : Patriot : 2011-2014 : All Wheel Drive : without Off-Road Group." Should I be concerned that my FDII was done as "without Off-Road Group"? Is there any difference in alignment between 2014 FDI and FDII? I believe that the suspension systems are the same in 2014, but would like confirmation. Thanks in advance.
