For anyone wondering about the dark spots/irregularities of the LED headlight beams. I did some searching on this, and there are numerous threads on other Toyota forums about it. It turns out that the dark spots in the beams are focused to converge in the oncoming lane to reduce the glare for oncoming drivers.

If you pull up close to a wall, you can see these spots clearly, and as you pull away, they get larger and converge on the driver’s side.

These go away completely when you turn on the high beams.

Apparently the Cutout is Normal and Intentional. The cutout is to prevent oncoming drivers from getting a face-full of light from your headlamps. It might be somewhat bothersome while driving, but it's not a defect; it's by design, and it shouldn't have a huge effect on safety. Or so that what Google says.
