It's not off-center anything (sorry, Jobst).

Uncaged ball bearings have a little space (actually enough room for one more ball) in the assembled system to allow the balls to rotate freely. As the balls progress around the hub the space is constantly shifting, creating a little wobble.

It's normal.
