Is this a concern with the binding? I have no read anything about this kind of issue. I am wondering if I should return them or contact Burton.
This is a flaw on Burton bindings, I had a pair that did the same thing. In addition to this i would get half way down a run and my toe cap would be laying in front of my boot cause the ratchets keep slipping under load.

Also my 9 yr old who weighs all of 60 lbs broke 2 Burton base plates in one season. It took 2 emails to Burton just to get a response. I was promised replacement parts.....which never arrived

We both have switched to Union and could not be happier.
