I remember a thread just like this on another site a couple of years ago when i bought my first insert.
Conclusion there was just what you read—
That the ever so slightly convex top is an intentional design feature of the Rousseau plate intended to insure that your workpiece was resting solidly on the plate at the point the workpiece met the bit.
Whether this was a GOOD decision as opposed to a perfectly flat plate—was an issue they never came to agreement on.
The inserts not sitting flush with the top of the plate is a whole different issue. As another poster said – you may need to press them in a little tighter. If that still doesnt work – there may be a defect.

-- Those who insist it can't be done - should politely refrain from interrupting those who are doing it.
