Default A bulge/bump on the back cover

Hi guys,
I got my nexus 5 a while ago and notice theres a bulge on the back cover right under the camera, i emailed google and got a replacement but it has the same bulge.
Will it cause any issue? The bulge is on top of the vibration motor.
I googled it and found some others having the same issue but nothing else about it.
Attaching the picture of it.

since you googled about it and found others but nothing else about it.. tell me, is it really an "issue"? i did check mine regardless, and dont have a bulge.

Isn't there a clip there? Push down on it and it might click into place. Maybe it just wasn't installed correctly from factory.

hmm... so its a rare case... and i have 2 of them...
I too think its a plastic defect, when i shine it on the light, it looks like a patch on the cover.
but its right on top of the vibration motor, so i wonder if anyone know will that cause an issue or not

edit: lol.. just did some test, the vibration motor is loose.... another RMA..
