Problem with sliding cabinet draw

I have purchased new cabinets and am in the process of putting the draws into the cab. One draw is not recessed at all. It extends about 1/8 past the cab front face but does not hit the doors when they are closed. I have enclosed a few pictures of the hard ware. Before I go and do some thing I might regret. I figured I would ask if there was a very easy fix or adjustment to be made.

I think that's the way it's supposed to be. If it doesn't hit the cabinet door, then what's the problem? Don't think it would be wise to take the screws out just to move it back 1/8". You would have to fill the holes good with a wood epoxy and then drill a new pilot hole.

The slides look like Blum Tandem/Smartmotion. When the drawer doesn't sit all the way back, it's usually because the rear mounting/securing hook doesn't line up with the hole in the back of the drawer. See the rear 6mm hole in drawing:

The slide has a hook that fits in the rear hole, the hook is adjustable.
