Admin notice jumps from above the H1 to below it when created.

Admin notices first appear above the H1 of a page, and then jump to just below it one second later. It is easy to reproduce by going to Settings->General-> Click "Save changes". You will see the "Settings Saved" notice jump from above the H1 to below it. You can see it in the gif below:
This also happens for custom notices, for example any class="notice notice-warning" will also jump.

Hi and welcome to WordPress Trac!

That's an interesting report, because notices are moved below the heading on purpose to make for a better and more accessible site structure. Since this happens using JavaScript, there's a short period of time where the notice is visible before the heading until the JavaScript is loaded and executed.

Hi @swissspidy, thank you for your quick response and explanation. It was my guess as well that it had something to do with the timing of elements being loaded on the page. I hope it does not mean it would be complicated to fix. I understand it is a very minor issue.
