Weldolets - Dimensionally incorrect

Has anyone else noticed the dimensions of Weldolets to be incorrect (I'm assuming its not just mine)? It appears that when they were programmed, they made a couple of common mistakes.

 

The diameter on the pipe size being one of them. A 4" pipe has an O.D of 4.5" (not 4.0"), 2 inch pipe has an O.D of 2.375" (not 2.0") etc so the olets inset too far

These are butt weld fittings, not socket fittings, so the connection point should be at the end of the fitting (not router from inside the fitting)

 

Has anyone rebuilt the design table to compensate for this? Maybe this issue has been fixed with solidworks 2017?
