Confused. Is this what level 5 looks like after remodel?

We are finishing up a home remodel and we had textured walls. Our designer and contractor advised us to do level 5 walls which is a significant cost to the overall budget. We were at the house yesterday and today and questioned the graininess of the walls. Granted, they do appear different depending on the light. Both the painting/drywall sub and designer say the walls appear this way because we used Benjamin Moore low VOC paint (Natura brand).

I’m confused as I thought it would look smoother and not sure about the grainy look. It’s 10 times better then what we had but doesn’t look like level 5 I have seen or the significant price we paid.

I would appreciate folks thoughts as my husband is upset and thinks that the dust never settled or there was roller primer issues. Im not sure what to think.
