I did this on the opposite site to the sensor which hit the post just incase that sensor had been damaged (which i'm pretty certain it did not)
I've had the same experience - reverse up to a wall (especially if it's at an angle), stop moving and the rear sensors/beeping/graphics seem to do their own thing. The front sensors seem to be much more 'consistent' though.

If you're near Brighton then might not hurt to get over to Chandlers in Portslade to have a look.
