Hoist Insertion Tool Snapping is Offset


When trying to snap a motor via the red insertion guides to a beam in a drawing (see the vertical light blue line in the photo) even when my cursor snaps to the light blue beam (as pictured) the red insertion square does not line up with the beam, it's offset slightly to the left.   So the hoist always inserts slightly off the beam.   Is this a bug?

This really doesn't seem like the correct behavior.  Support told me they believe it's operating as intended but I feel like it's incorrect.  In CAD software I should be able to place the hoist with 100% precision to the beam while maintaining the center snap not have the tool dictate to me where the beam is.    Anyone else?
