I calculate a symmetric surface model. However, the reported tensions are not consistent. Is it a user error?

Answer

So that the correct stresses are displayed on all surfaces, it is recommended to activate the local axis system by using the Project Navigator - Display the surface axis system. It is often apparent that the respective surfaces have a different rotation of the surface axes than the other surfaces (see Figure 1).
