Question Strata2 default ProceduralTerrain rendering error with holes?

Strata2 default ProceduralTerrain rendering error with holes?
I have rendered the Strata2 Procedural terrain included in the Vue 8.4 xStream default collection.
- But the problem is that it appear strange holes in the rendering on the terraces and plateaus at a little bit altitude.
I thinked that these are water reflections of the material;
thus I have resetted the terrain material;
but the problem is not relative to the material.
The holes appear also after Reset Material operation.

- It seems that the polygonal normals of the terrain terraces are inverted and Vue display the internal faces of the mountains, at the flat terraces level.
- It appears that the flat terraces have a hole.

- What is the problem of this "Strata2" procedural terrain file?
- What settings and/or parameters I should tweak?
- Anyone have already encountered this strange effect?

Please see the attached rendering:

Please help me!
Many thanks in advance!

I tried some settings: it appears that the problem is relative to the "Force Extension" value in the main panel of terrain editor of the procedural terrain.
I am not sure...but this is a issue that appears with all the terrains with Force extension applied!
- How can I do?
