The wide paw doesn't have to sit flush. It's there so that if the stand starts to break through the dirt crust, it will stop it. It'd be nice if it were exactly flush, but it all depends on tires, spring wear, individual variations in assembly and how the kickstand maker had his machine set up that day.
Even on hot tar, it might punch a dimple in the macadam but the spread claw will keep it from going deep. I'd say, if it's setting right and leaning as you want it, and stably...leave it be and accept it.
When I had one, it was the same. As it was too heavy for my taste, I replaced it with SW Motech one. That one is now sitting on the angle as well, not flushed with concrete floor.
So, they are designed like that.
