Yep, blowing smoke.

I’ve measured for a lot of glass...and I’ve had multiple glass companies do the measuring. All of our drawings indicate 90 degrees....along with how much the angles deviate +/- from 90.

They can cut an angle but the notches are more difficult. That's why notching the quartz is a good idea on that.

I work for a glass company, and yes we measure and cut for slopes, out of level and plumb... We have now started to waterjet our notches in the glass, instead of cutting the benches and pony wall caps. This notch has to take into account the slope of those surfaces to fit correctly.
The step panel could be leaning out towards the tub. The outside corner where the two panels meet, should always be plumb in both directions, and everything level across the top, if it's measured and installed correctly. If it's out of plumb and there's a gap on the leg going down the face of the bench, it may just need to be adjusted.

I wish i had a picture of the glass door a guy had cut around the bench he tiled. It was about an 8" diameter 1/2 round cut in it. They can cut glass however they "want" to.
