Could be that they machined the top surface and tee slots first then used those to mount the slide inverted to machine the bottom and vee ways.

I would not be surprised if the table was machined from the end of the original billet. A likely case of using every bit of the billet possible.
In the old days, castings were ‘weathered’ for a few weeks or months before final machining took place, to avoid such movements after machining. ‘Just in time’ methods have rplaced the large inventory of rough castings.
Same occurs with timber - the ends are often needed to be discarded after seasoning - usually evident by some splitting at the extremity.
Question: is the bed OK at the other end? That might be a pointer.
