Did a little research and it seems that the tabs are indeed to ground the socket to reduce electromagnetic interference per the FCC. Maybe we both got that particular tab caught and pushed the wrong way when positioning the board, although, it seems designed to provide the locking tab for the connector. On some posts I read that some people just snip them off rather than dealing with trying to get them positioned correctly. Apparently the component or socket will still work fine, it will just produce more interference than intended. It only becomes a real problem when the tab blocks the port. So, I’m not remounting my board because it seems to be working fine.
