I purchased a factory unlocked S20+5G (SM-G986U1).  IMEI check confirms a Model Code of SM-G986UZAAXAA. However, when I check About Phone > Status it shows a Model Code of SM-G986UZAATMB.  My carrier is T-Mobile, but how would that change the model code of the phone (from XAA to TMB)????   Or is something fishy with the phone?

There is absolutely nothing to worry about. The only letters/numbers that matter for your model number end with 'U." The rest is carrier/unlock status and country information. TMB=T-Mobile.
