It reflects what is declared in the source file headers, so it's as correct
as they are.
Normally it's not so hard to figure out if a dataset projection or bbox are
out of place, if you don't know the coordinates
a rough check can be made by taking some reference cartography (e.g.,
natural earth countries or admnistrative subdivision),
load it in Geoserver and ask for both layers, see if the data is in the
area you expected it to be.

Are you oversampling the original, native resolution or the file by much?
Say 100 times or more? If so, it's a known issue, no one has been
bothered to fund a fix for it so far. Mind, as far as I know this is in
image processing, changing the source format should not result in a
different behavior, but... who knows :-)

Hmmm.. here I'm not sure, never use TMS personally (I use WMTS insteadl),
others might be able to help you better.
GWC won't serve just any random tile, it has validity ranges depending on
the area covered by your source data (only serves tiles overlapping the
data bounding box)
Unfortunately TMS does not provide the validity ranges like WMTS does,
though the error message is a bit strange.
