cement (not returning to the same spot) is what, 5% of that max range?
You make the assumption that the "at rest" displacement is proportional to
the max displacement.
No, it is not proportional. I pointed out the estimated % displacement the
guy was showing for his numbers. If he had applied more pressure, the est
imated % at rest dislacement would be less. Part of his validating that hi
s evaluations are completly trustworthy, also, depends on his validating th
at his caliper is accurate.
No matter, in either case, I suspect both his SawStop and caliper are worki
ng normally, reasonably, within their limits and/or tolerances.

And because it's not proportional, less force applied could achieve the same amount or close to the same amount of rest displacement as the larger force.
Again, more data is needed and the concern is warranted.

I am not real familiar with that particular SawStop, It is the
Pro/hybrid version, basically the bottom end unit. Mine is the ICS,
Industrial cabinet saw.
I am wondering why SawStop has not been contacted. There are bolts that
can be loosened and if they are loosened this will happen. Most any saw
will be sloppy if every thing is not tight. The whole assembly is
moving, I even see the brake moving. His arbor is not the moving by it
self, it is the whole carriage. Basically what is moving is the
adjustment to make takes care of setting to keep the blade parallel to
the miter slot when the blade is tilted. Older TS,s uses shims between
the table top and the cabinet. The SawStop and perhaps even yours use a
different method for this adjustment. It is basically how the Euro
style saws are adjusted.
To follow up a bit and after looking around a bit. I would be willing
to bet that when he pushes on the arbor that the back and or front of
the cabinet is flexing too. I think the play is the give in the cabinet
area that the trunnion sets on. This is one of the reasons many move up
to a full blown cabinet saw with much larger/wider trunnion to cabinet
contact point. My old Craftsman contractors saw bevel angle would
change if you pushed in on the right side of the saw under the table.
My ICS Saw stop has trunnion mounts that are the entire width of the saw
cabinet, front and back. The table bolts directly to the trunnion
mounts so if the cabinet flexes and or has any movement the trunnions
and table move as a unit.
