Headlight lower on drivers side

I have a new C-Class Coupe (C205/2016 model) and when the LED headlights (without Intelligent light system) are on low-beam mode, the drivers side appears to be slightly lower than then beam projected by the passenger side (e.g. there is a noticeable step down on the horizon where the light is projecting at night).

I've read various things, but nothing conclusive, suggesting that this is the standard operating function with low beam lights required to be lower on the drivers' side in order not to dazzle oncoming traffic

Can anyone confirm their LED headlights operate in the same way?

That is the way we used to check/aim headlights for new car delivery. It was just a very slight difference on the drivers side.
