I can only refer you to the bit I put in post 2.

And say without any uncertainty that MOT inspectors are a queer breed.
Some can be really helpful and knowledgeable, quite prepared to pass a vehicle with a minor fault they can turn a blind eye to, like a warning message.
Others seem to think their job is to fail anything no matter how trivial or a matter of opinion.
Some, who often work for larger companies, see an MOT test as an opportunity to source "repair" work.

My last two tests on my Scenic.... last year got the fussy inspector, list of advisories a mile long. Which I looked at and ignored as no consequence.
This year got the more laid back guy, no advisories whatsoever.
Same garage, same car just 10K more on the clock, how do advisories disappear ?
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
