Mate reference for screw with fillet edge

How can I add a mate reference to an imported screw that has a fillet edge so that it mates nicely with a hole feature?

 

For example, this works fine:

 

 

But this does not work:

 

 

A screw like the example doesn't have a clean circular edge where the thread and head meet so that is not an option either.

 

I know I could change the geometry to make an edge that works but I'd like to avoid that. As far as I understand, the second image should work but it's not. Any ideas what's going on?

 

Examples attached now.
