I'd guess that the short answer is that these are known issues and the ebook compile options are one of the areas that the team are likely to continuing to look at developing.
It's worth remembering, however, that "Scrivener itself is not an e-book editor, even though it can produce e-books via its compiliation process." Have a look at the following support page where the team links to a couple of free tools to help tidy some of these things up.

Basically, Scrivener is a writing tool designed to help you get to your first draft. I personally think of the compile options as various ways to export my content into a format that can be reviewed and appraised, rather than being a way to generate a 'consumer-ready' output. It doesn't automatically produce a printed and bound paperback book; it produces a document you can send to an editor or publisher. Likewise, the ebook options produce something that can be read and reviewed on an ebook reader, but - at this stage in the Windows version at least - you may need to use some form of external software as well before you go to the paying public.
