Dear Francesco,

If the plots look reasonable to you, I'm sure the solution is fine and you are can proceed running OpenFAST for your analysis.

The OpenFAST r-test is highly sensitive and will indicate failures due to differences in compiler, platform, precision, source code changes, etc., even though the results are clearly within engineering accuracy. This is something that needs to be fixed with the testing framework in the future.
