2016 roof question

On the roof of our camper appears to have several small hard bumps that I'm guessing is nails coming up.
They are all near seams where plywood meet.
The repair facility said Jayco was admit they would NOT pay to remove membrane to view/fix.
Jayco approved to have them tapped back down, then caulked and reseal the whole roof. Sounded like painting on a rubber coat.
Looking for thoughts on this?

You are under warrantee. Take it back to your dealer and have them repair it correctly to NEW condition.

There shouldn't be any nails along the seams where the roof plywood sheets meet. Jayco goes to great length to note they use screws along the seams where the roof plywood meets.

I know nail guns are used along the edges of the roofing plywood, but not the seams where the plywood sheets meet.

If there are bumps along the seams, could it be the screws were screwed down far enough? Some of the screw head was left above the plywood surface? Or somehow the screw has backed out in some manner?
