Default Control Arm - Bracket Bushing - Loose?

Had a look at the control arm bushings that I replaced this past Winter, today.
The Driver's side rear bushing looks to be a tad unseated from the bushing holder/bracket.
The control arm still rotates freely and the bushing doesn't seem loose.
No rattling while driving.

Is this something I should be concerned about down the road?

Did you happen to notice whether when the control arm rotates, the bushing rotates in its bracket? That would be worth checking.

The bushing does not appear to rotate in the bracket when the control arm is rotated.

Based on your comments, I don't think you have anything to worry about. Take a look at it occasionally and see if anything changes.
