Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just had new tires put on my daughters 2008 Corolla and had them check the alignment.  Was told front is good but rear is slightly off.  I called Toyota since I have not noticed any unusual wear of the tires and Toyota say you do not do that. They said the the rear toe is self adjusting and that no matter how many times they put it on the machine they will get a different number.  Am i understanding this correctly for can you explain?

I am sorry. I was told rear SHIMS were needed by the company i bought the tires from. Toyota said not necessary for this car.
