Just want to add that the impostor glitch still exists (march 3, 2021).
It happened to me again just now, this time to the trees outside of the crafing building.
I also found the crafting building itself glitching, it looks like a different type of glitch, although it does look LoD-related too.

Absolutely no idea. I haven’t been able to see any pattern from the few times I’ve experienced it.
This time I just loaded in game near the carpentry, then walked up to the crafting house. Boom.
Walking away and coming back did not help (but other people were in that chunk so it didn’t unload in between… edit: truth be told I probably didn’t walk far enough away, I was a bit distracted at the time, hence the shaky camera too)
Logging out from the server and joining again did remedy the glitch.
