Swollen lug nuts on 15 Nav L

I am familiar with delamination/distortion with the capped lug nuts from my 16 F150. I was surprised this morning when having routine tire rotation at 63K miles on my Navigator L that service tech reported 6 or my 24 lug nuts are swollen making them difficult to remove. More importantly, it means the sockets on the lug nut tool used when you have a flat will not fit.

My F150 lug nuts were replaced under warranty, but dealer said Ford denied the claim so they are the cost. He filed warranty claim today on my Navigator ESP extended warranty policy, but unsure if it will be approved.

There is a class action law suit on this issue for Fords (F150, Escape, etc), but it does not include any Lincoln vehicles.

Any one else have this issue or am I being pushed by QuickLane advisor to replace my lug nuts to help their bottom line?
