I wonder if it was intended to fit the exhaust system differently ?

I looked at my body tub last night whilst crawling about underneath connecting up my gear stick linkages to the gearbox again, and can confirm that my body tub has the same profile shape as yours in these areas.

I bet Chris P is right, it's probably something to do with exhaust routing... Maybe!
