This is not "hard fact", but one more thing to this strange issue with SMSD:
The smsdate given by the SMS center can vary also because of load balancing. I mean that it is possible that Your operator has more than one server in SMS center. So if there are a lots of SMS traffic, the messages can go through different servers. If clock is not synchronized between the servers, there can then be one server that has incorrect time settings. This could cause the 10/11% variance.

Thanks for your clarification.

Best Regards
