There cannot be a fault with liveview, let's just be very clear about that. It uses the sensor to focus and there IS NO calibration for liveview. It is completely driven by the firmware on the camera. All cameras will be have the same with the same lens.

The ONLY area where a fault can occur is the phase detect auto-focus where people have found it focusing incorrectly particularly with the outer sensors.

Your "flat" subject areas are too large. The distance to the corners of the scene is substantially greater than the centre so will be outside the depth of field.

I see nothing wrong with the liveview pictures.
