I think I can rule out bit deflection or machine deflection because the pockets are extremely accurate and square (albeit too small) Surely if there were any deflection the edges of the cuts would be "wobbly"
Do a simple profile cut square with the same bit, depths and feed rates. Measure that. Now, with the same vectors, change the toolpath to 0,5mm depth or so so it just barely cuts the surface. If there is no bit deflection or machine deflection then the results will be identical.
What type of pocket toolpath are you doing? If it's a raster have you got a final pass option selected?
