Can you post a link to the model? Or it's number? This usually means there's a problem with the stl or scad file.

yes when you see strange slicing behavior and areas filled in that arent supposed to be like in the first two circled item then 99% of the time its a problem with the model.

When this happens, usually a "reverse face" will fix the issue. If it doesn't, reverse the face in the desgn software. If manifold is verified, then filp an adjacent face and flip it back.
