You're talking bollocks

The syteering will always self center

Caster and KPI from the multitude of alignment sessions?
If it's inconsistent I would suspect issues with bushings, likely the big one in the front tension arm but also possibly topmounts

While the steering rack was off I assume someone checked
-steering wheel has no resistance when turning
- road wheels are free to steer
And I hope you changed tie rods or at the very least their freedom to rotate was checked

From your description of wandering I think bushes/tie rod ends are a likely suspect but by all means jack the front wheels off the ground and make sure then steering is little finger light (take appropriate safety measures too)
I personally think that like all new cars the steering has no feel but it certainly should self centre and it should not wander about - tram lining is a different matter
