It could just be the compression and displacement of clay AROUND the stamp ... have you tried using a rib to heavily compress your plate surface before stamping?
I always compress the plates heavily with a wooden rib in the beginning, and then with a rubber rib for smoother surface. I am certain it is because of the compression around the stamped area long with displacement. The only thing that seems to even it out is the large straight hack saw blade over the center once trimmed down. I don't place the stamp in the center more at 10, 2, 4 or 8 on the clock half way from center to edge.
