A flat plate of given weight per m will flex way more than an RSJ of the same weight/m.
Flat plate flexes and bends very easily, compare a diving board vs a canoe, both similar weight/m and similar materials.......

if you can get a feeler gauge between the plate and original mount when the bike is on the mainstand, I bet you cant get the same thickness of gauge in there when the bike is on the sidestand.
