Window and interior doorframes separating at corners


I moved into my house about 4 years ago and the inspector never noticed any unevenness or cracks in the corners of the frames windows or doors. I’m not sure if he over-looked it, the previous owners tried to mask it or they are new. Some of the closet doors appear to have been attempted at some kind of repair (looks like caulking or putty and small nails). Could anyone look at these photos and give me an idea of what I might be dealing with? So far the doors and windows open and close okay and they seem to be level. On the front and back door there is more wear on one side of the bottom of the door than the other. I’m just wondering if this is normal settling, poor craftsmanship, or something larger that I need to be concerned with and if so, who I should contact?

I’ve attached photos. Thank you for any and all recommendations and comments.
