Might they have not fully cleared the foam from the side of the tank?


I think only you can answer that! Remove the strap and have a look.

once you have made sure that all the foam has been removed from
the cylinder where the thermostat makes contact, ensure that it
makes good mechanical contact with the cylinder.

if you have some thermal grease, the stuff used with CPU cooling
'radiators', put a smear of that on the tank before refitting the
thermostat.
