You're almost right Jim.  I noticed the same thing.  I went back and checked
and had the correct grid entered into the MY_GRIDSQUARE field which it seems
LoTW ignores.  The good news is that you can add locations to your existing
certificate using the Station/Add location option in TQSL as long as the
callsign is exactly the same.   The moral of which is that it pays to read
the FAQ https://www.arrl.org/lotw/faq#logsrovers

I'll try to have the entries corrected later tonight or tomorrow.

Still Learning,
