Separators not centered on ePub 3 compile

I set the separator for my book documents to ***. The separator appears but it is not centered in the preview viewer on KDP or in the Kindle Previewer 3 on my windows pc.
The same setting works as expected if I compile to a word document.
Any help would be appreciated.
