Roof deck joint movement

I have a 2016 Mini Lite 2104. While placing my cover on for the upcoming winter. I noticed an area in the middle of the roof which has movement between the roof decking under the membrane. The membrane is not damaged but there is some movement between the factory edges of the decking underneath. I am not sure if this is normal or a sign of a problem with the mounting of the roof decking. Does anyone have experience with this? I am not sure of how the Mfg constructs this model. I would assume deck joints would be on structural cross-supports?

Hate to use the D word but may be the start of delamination. How good is your dealer? I would have it looked at as the roofs on a Rockwood are laminated construction just like the walls. They are usually fairly bulletproof. I have walked / worked on lots them and have never really seen or felt much movement of the substrate while doing so other than if you step right on top of one of the 8" wide channels they rout into the foam for the AC duct. Those run front to back and are located at the outside edges of the AC unit.
