Significance of roof coming away from underlayment??

I walked the roof of an 09 Country Coach Intrigue for sale today, and found some spots where the fiberglass roof had separated from the underlayment. The roof itself looked fine otherwise.

Can anyone explain the significance of that, the ramifications down the road, and whether it's a deal breaker?
Note: there was no evidence of leaks inside the coach.

Thanks for your support.

At least on my Newmar, the fiberglass roof is not bonded to the substrate to allow for differential contraction and expansion due to cold and hot weather.

The roofs on CC's float, they are not glued to the underneath structure

Ditto for the fiberglass roof on my American Tradition.
