It doesn’t seem like it to me. I would think it should just use the right guide, or at the least bypass that nib 🤔

Run the cable above the nib.

Looks to me like either routing will work.

Run it over.

The tab is supposed to rest against the bb shell - loosen it (and the mech cables) and slide it down until it does..

The cable guide may be too far up the downtube as well. Slide it down further toward the BB.

Otherwise you'll have the cable rubbing on the back of the seat tube.

yes, but often there are bottom bracket spigots that prevent that.
dropping it down also requires longer cable, not a huge amount but. Test, don't guess.

It appears to me at one point it was touching the shell.

This whole message makes good sense, but I REALLY like this part!

Yeah, was thinking about that! It's been a long time since I had a bike that used that cable guide!

that close up shows that translating it down will probably reveal considerable paint damage on the down tube.
