yes, the plate must be flat , otherwise you’ll be sacrificing precision and safety in which case – what’s the point of using a router table to begin with?

the inserts should sit flush , or lower than the plate so that you can shim them – but not higher.

as for the plate cupping – you can shim the router where it’s attached to the plate in order to fix the cupping. if you can post here in which direction and how much it’s cupping I can tell you which screws/bolts to shim.
