BA Seat Allocation algorithm hates me?

I just booked a short-haul flight for a couple of weeks out. I'm Gold, Mrs NeverFirst is silver.
"You have been assigned seats", which is fine, except the algorithm put me & MrsNeverFirst in row 25(!) when the seats are barely 20% assigned - nothing has been assigned from row 12 backwards! The same thing happened on the inbound.

Luckily I noticed and moved to row 7, so crisis(*) averted. (Now I'm thinking maybe they know it's going to be a bus gate and loaded through the rear doors... )

(*) FT Hyperbole, of course.
