Although this is a valid point, I think there is value in identifying major problems even minor ones before accepting the boat and getting them fixed while they are commissioning the vessel. After all, it's a lot harder getting work done after the dealers been paid.

I survey 2-3 new boats per year and yes I have found significant issues in rare
cases. Most of the issues though are small and would not justify the cost of the survey. Some issues that would be difficult or near impossible to find won't reveal themselves for a few months or a year.
