Inconsistent Rounding Between SolidWorks and Inspection Add-In

I have experienced a bug in the rounding behavior between SolidWorks and Inspection Add-In. When a limit tolerance is applied to three places, with the last digit being a 5 (ex: +.025), and the precision is only displayed to two places, SolidWorks rounds the number UP on the drawing, but rounds DOWN inside Inspection. I attached a photo showing the discrepancy.

I realize displaying a three place tolerance with two places is not proper, but SolidWorks should round numbers consistently within its own software nonetheless. Curious to see if there is any workaround for this.
