Figma layout grids - unequal columns and margins

No matter what I do, on some screens such as the iPhone X, it ain’t possible setting up an equal layout grid. One of the columns or the margins would always be sized differently.
Why is that? Thanks :).

Think about how the math would work out on a 375px (the iPhone X size) wide frame with 3 columns. If you want everything to be rounded to the nearest pixel, it becomes harder to find margin and gutter values that would yield equal width columns. And I don’t think layout grids ever use sub-pixels. Auto Layout does though, so you could always do your columns with Auto Layout.
