those pics still show characteristics to having modular construction...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

You should have ordered them prehung. Too late now but you can't compete cost wise with a door shop's assembly jigs and production routines. It'd take them 5 minutes to do accurately what it'll take you to the morning to do. A good door shop makes what you want not what Big Box thinks you need.

Normally I do order prehung, for the one door I did order that way. The office door I ordered without because I had the choice of 4-9/16" then add jamb extensions or make it myself, starting with a 1x12". I've got the jigs to cut mortises to hang the door, it will only add about 90 min.
Way more time than a door shop mfg floor, but this way no seam.
