Even in circular polarization, they are still in phase. The phase difference here is between electric field in x axis and y axis.Yes, I agree. My mind was distracted and Iím so used go thinking in E fields only I transposed them.
It looks like a cabinet or cavalier projection. Which means that there is phase difference.I still think itís an effect of a poor graphic, I would be surprised if the illustrator was thinking cabinet or had been told to put in a phase shift.
If you wanted to show them as out of phase you would either put them both on the same axes or label the z axis to specific points. Have you contacted them to point out the anomaly?
