Does my 18-135 have any sharpness issues on the telephoto end?

I have a strong feeling, that my 18-135 has some sharpness issues on the long end, but my local Fuji service is telling me, that everything is okay and it passed all the tests (they only shoot synthetic tests and refuse to go outside).

Here are some 100% center crops (all shot at f/8 and proper shutter speed or a tripod):

And some raw files just in case someone likes pixel peeping: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/o750d32ln6ft3ev/AAAHbx-813DvQKQeaLYgWURca?dl=0

I do understand, that it's a superzoom and it can't be perfect. But that's something I will delete without even looking at 100% size.

Is that expected image quality or I'm not lucky?
