Not really the case at all. In 90% of the cases (both PUPs and A-frames), I suspect the cause of misalignments is putting down the stabilizers too hard. Like a convertible car, the frame is subject to more bending moment when there is no attached body and roof (roof is very important) to strengthen the frame.
And being light RVs to begin with, it's very easy to apply a bending force to the frame with the stabilizers.
On my A122 A-frame, I have misalignment with the latches if I put the stabilizers down a little too firmly. On my previous PUP, putting down the stabilizers too hard would cause misalignment of the canvas at the door. I have become a proponent of just kissing the ground with the stabilizers - and no more, no matter how soft the ground.
That's not saying that there can't be misalignment caused by the roof or side panel hinges on an A-frame. These can be bent, or the fasteners can lose their grip, or can come from the factory not mounted correctly. But hinge problems would cause a consistent misalignment.
None of this has anything to do with leveling, but rather to do with how properly the panels are aligned during setup.
just my experiences
