Player position on resized dino looks different in dev kit vs in game

Has anyone experienced the issue where, in the dev kit, when you force tame your dino of altered size (larger dino for me) your rider looks like he is riding inside the dino. But then, without changing the rider socket, you cook it and upload it and in game, your rider is riding above the saddle. This makes it extremely difficult to fix hovering issues if there is such a large difference in the dev kit vs in game.

bump. Anyone experiencing this? This happens with my larger ptera. I cannot get the ride to go down, no matter how deep into the dinos back I put the RiderSocket.
