Possible TPO roof delamination

I have a 2019 Rockwood Ultralite 5er with a TPO roof, and there are numerous places where the roof seems to be delaminating. I would guess there are 40 or more bubbles scattered throughout the roof that are anywhere from 1/4" to 2" in diameter. I can poke them and they feel like air pockets. I had a "Forever Warranty" inspection done just two days ago at the dealer where I purchased it, and they didn't mention anything about it. I'll be calling them tomorrow to discuss, but is this something that may require a roof replacement? I can't imagine this is normal. I'm wondering if they even went on the roof to inspect at all since they missed an obvious hole in the middle of the roof and a corner where the Dicor split. I fixed both of those with eternalbond tape.

The bubbles are actually typical. There is some trapped air/off gas bubbles that occur. Keep an eye on them to ensure they do not continue to grow. Our new trailer has them as well. Seemed to be more prevalent around the sheathing seams when I was cleaning the roof yesterday.

Thanks. Just wanted to make sure this wasn't normal. It'll be interesting to see what FR says.

An 'obvious hole' in the middle of the roof! I would definitely pursue their 'inspection'. I have a forever warranty on my TT and when I took it to my dealer for the annual inspection, I was told since I had that warranty that I actually did not have to bring it in for annual inspection. Sound correct? I do know they inspected my roof because they used white Dicor on my gray membrane; now looks like a bird cr8pped on it.

FR informed my dealer that there was nothing wrong with the roof membrane. Doesn't seem right but not sure what else to do at this point. My dealer said we need to keep an eye on it to see if it gets any worse, and they'd get back with FR at that point.
