Door hinge not covered by McLaren warranty - huh?

I have a 12 month McLaren warranty and the dealership noticed a crack in the door hinge. Apparently the warranty company says the door and hinge are NOT covered by the warranty as they're considered "trim". The dealership is being great but their hands are tied.

How can a fundamental structural safety component of the car not be covered by the warranty?

I don't have the actual contract (not sure I ever received it) so can't check the wording but has this hit others? Given the door hinges are known to crack, are the warranty company just starting to dodge these claims?

Lots written about this on the Facebook group that Thorney runs. Apparently pretty widespread amongst sports series cars.
