The new chair doesn't auto-adjust itself to face the table when positioned certain ways.
Below are images that show how the game auto-adjusts the chairs:
As you can see, the last two images show the instances (chairs placed to the bottom or left of table) where the game will adjust the chairs properly so there's no real issue if you're going to use the chairs in these positions.
However, the chair doesn't auto-adjust to face the table when placed to the top or right of the table (first 2 images). If you leave the chair as the game places it, then the bots will see it and sit down as normal so it's not the biggest issue but the chairs look odd facing the wrong way.
