rough door framing. Header level or jack studs the same height?

Running into a bit of an issue with a rough opening for a bedroom door I am framing out. I cut both trimmers / jack studs to 81" and I put the header in. I measured up from the floor and all across the bottom of the header is 82 1/2" inches. I stepped back and I checked out the top of the header to the ceiling and it is about 1/4" inch off of level. I could make the header level, but one trimmer / jack stud on the right side would be 1/4 inch taller.

I also put a level on the bottom of the floor joist where the top plate connects to and that is not level. I checked the floor and it is out of level in some areas as well where the bottom plate rests. I think this is what is throwing me off so much?

Does it matter if the header is not level since it is just a rough opening to shim it up anyway when I go to install the door?

It does not matter if the rough opening is out of square.
