Personally the first thing I do when presented with a PDF file from anywhere that has "Two Pages Viewing" set as default as in your examples is to switch to "Single page" (and defeat scrolling). And I do this even when there are figures or images spanning two pages. The lack of alignment between facing pages becomes irrelevant. The only time misalignment would concern me is in those spanned figures and images when, and if, I want to see them in full.

KDP is primarily for publishing ebooks in Kindle (mobi) format. Amazon has added a possibility to convert the mobi file to paperback but I don't think you have any control over the final formatting. Createspace used to handle paperback versions connected to KDP and I think their paperbacks can still be connected to the Kindle version at Amazon. With Createspace, you provide the print-ready PDF and they just print it, without any conversions, so you have full control over the final result.

Out of some discussion I have had, the shift may become obvious and disturbing, if the paper is thin enough the print from the next side is shining through.
