I wouldn't worry about it. Have a go with it, resharpen a few times if it needs it and see what difference it makes if you reshape the edge. It's all part of the curve!I have just acquired a tool sharpening jig to allow me to produce repeateable sharpening on my tools and have noted something surprising.
When I presented the 1/2” Sorby bowl gouge to the wheel using the jig I found the bevel angle on one of the wings very different from the tip and the other wing - see pics.
I find it surprising given the supposed quality of these tools and wondered if anyone else has encountered similar?

Small wheel means concave bevel, but also the most difficult way to achieve anything in particular. Easily ends up looking like nibbled by rats.
Personally I prefer flattish - achieved on a flat sanding disc.
PS jig obviously no good. Bin the jig.
