macOS Monterey 12.4 Bug in Custom Paper Size

macOS Monterey 12.4 appears to have a bug in the new user-interface layout for defining a custom paper size. The left and bottom margin values appear to be switched. The value entered for one field applies to the margin with the opposite label. The workaround for now is to swap the two values, entering the bottom margin value in the left field and vice-versa. This bug appears to affect all printing applications which use the built-in macOS user-interface to access the driver.

Yes, I see the same.

btw, the margins set in this dialog box are intended to designate the margins that are not printable by the printer (when not using a borderless mode), and are not intended to designate the borders desired on the print. This can lead to considerable confusion if misunderstood. Once set, they should never be changed.

Some software will shrink the print to fit within these unprintable margins, some software will truncate any items extending into these unprintable margins, and some software will attempt to print in the unprintable margins regardless, thus giving unpredictable results and hence confusion.
