Help me make sense of this wheel alignment report!

I just went in for an alignment after getting new tires (Continental Cross Contact) on my XC90. The old tires, Nokians, were cupped and scalloped pretty badly after only 19,000 miles on them. The tire shop that installed the tires suggested my XC90 might benefit from an alignment check; they didn't offer that service so I took it to another shop.

The report they printed out after doing the work appears to show the rear left wheel's camber being out of spec. They adjusted it and the new result is even further out of spec. Can this be fixed? Do I need to go back to the shop and demand they bring that camber into spec? Why would they give me back my car after not actually correcting the problem? My car now seems to track slightly to the right, which it didn't do before.

2018 XC90 with air suspension and 37,000 miles on it.

Something is bent. Usually have to guess to figure it out though, unfortunately.
It won't be something you'll be able to see, most likely. If you can see it, it would be way worse.

A ride height measurement before the alignment should have been taken. I don't recall the specs though
