I noticed exactly the same when I took a look : with the cam markers aligned, the bottom (crank) sprocket looks like it is one tooth past the centre of the pick-up. The last person who lined it up was me, a couple of years ago, and I was being really careful. I never noticed any power loss. In fact it was red lining really easily, partly because the PO changed the sprockets. I'm replacing the engine, because some idiot thrashed it and now I have rod knock and flakes of bearing in the oil.
I took photos of where the timing sprockets were. Very weird !
