RGB Black Backplate Mount for LGA1151 board fits holes but not at the indentations set for 115x

I'm trying to put in a coolermaster 212 rgb black on an LGA1151 board (Asrock Z390 Pro4). I'm having trouble with the backplate mount. I followed the directions but realized that the support mount for the cooler only fits through the holes when the tabs are in a position other than what is said to be the correct one in the manual. Basically, putting the tabs in the LGA115X position doesn't work.   

  

The tabs in the LGA2066/2011-v3/2011/1366 position are what fit. It's an LGA1151 board, though.  

  

Am I fine just having it fit and going from there or am I dealing with some sort of machining issue that I'll have to resolve later on?  
   
I just want to know before I start putting on thermal paste and trying to mount the heatsink. The brackets also are supposed to go off of socket type with different positions for each type. If I were just doing it without the instructions, I'd just put everything in the configuration that has everything fit where they're seemingly supposed to go.
