Samples beginning above neutral plane?

Samples beginning above neutral plane?

I have a couple drum samples and turns out, they begin a bit above the neutral plane. I don't know why the person didn't check for that before delivering.

When I play them back, they actually sound absolutely fine even though both start at about, let's say close to halfway above the neutral plane. There is no clicking or popping when I play them back. These are 32bit samples too.

Should I repair these, and if so, how? Maybe leaving them alone is ok too since they already sound fine as it is. I thought I'd hear a click though at the beginning but I'm not.

EDIT: I'm using logic with the Snap Edits To Zero Crossings setting turned on. When I trim the beginning, Logic is allowing me to trim anywhere as the waveforms glide down to the first zero crossing points. I thought Logic would snap it over to the right where the zero crossing takes place? But after the point where the first zero crossing appears, THEN it begins to snap to all zero crossings. I'm not sure if that's how Logic functions or if something else weird is going on.
