Deck footers not 100% level?

I am building a deck that is 24x16 and sits about 8' off the ground. We have an engineer design it for us structurally. The beam runs across three 6x6 posts.

I poured my three footers and set the j-bolt in place. Now that the footers have cured for about 3 days, one of the footers seems to be unlevel by about 1/8" or so. Is this going to cause me big issues? By unlevel, I mean I put my post holder on the j-bolt and when setting the level across that it is off.

Thanks for any advice.
