Here’s a similar thread from about a year ago.

0.008 is probably well within the manufacturers spec and sounds flat enough to do excellent woodworking. Worrying about getting it flatter than that is probably a crap shoot.

As for the wing sag you might try to correct that. Since shimming to eliminate the sag is cheap and easy it’s probably worth a try. A strip of tape on the bottom side of the joint where the wing attaches to the table would probably be enough to lift the wing ends. Loosen the wing, slide the strip of tape in at the bottom, maybe a quarter or half inch wide piece of tape or paper or any other thin shim, tighten the wing back up.
