SAP explanations concerning Price vs exchange diffs + GR entry multiple vendor PO

1A.- Price & Exchange rate differences (transaction key PRD and KDM in invoice verification (MIRO))

In SAP note 331910 it is stated that if price and exchange rate differences have different signs, then the systems will add both together.

To our opinion these differences should be booked separately. So, the question is: why are these added together if signs are different and how can this be changed?

1B.- Price & Exchange rate differences with credit note/invoice cancellation (transaction key KDM in invoice verification (MIRO))

In SAP note 116250 it is stated that exchange rate differences (KDM) can not be cancelled automatically, that this is not dangerous and that it needs to be reversed manually.

We must treat GR/IR exchange rate differences as currency result and not product cost, which is confirmed by a major audit firm (big 4 firm). Therefore, the question is: why does SAP expect this to be part of product cost (with key PRD) and how can we arrange proper automatic reversal if the GR/IR FX differences?

2.- Financial entry goods receipt on multiple vendor PO (for product + freight)

See screenshot below. The amount of € 145.63 relates to transport and the € 7,281.56 to product. The price diff of € 905.40 actually also includes the transport cost of € 145.63, but transport cost is also booked separately on purchase cost account. We are aware that it is offset by Inv. Net change account, so total P&L is ok, but to our opinion the double counting is incorrect. Question is: why is freight accounted for twice as purchase cost and how can this be changed?
