it’s not unusual to have the mortises on both sides meet in the middle – mostly you’ll see the tenons mitered to fill the entire gap, but it precut kits it could be considered a waste. regardless, its a common thing, and not so rare.

As long as you get long grain to long grain surface for the glue to grab on to – it doesn’t matter what the mortise looks like on the inside.

I say – just finish up the glue up and don’t think twice about it.
