Think your instincts are correct. Reversing the wheel with that effect suggests wheel dishing to me. You can check by popping another wheel in there if needs. Wheel wont need a rebuild, unless incorrect spoke lengths used, just redishing and spoke tensions rechecked. A 30 minute job for the original wheel builder. Always welcome pop by if passing for 2nd opinion.
The wheel does look a bit slanty but that is phone camera angle and bike leaning slightly.
