Technically speaking EA is stupid in the sense it's very brief. The actual implementation is another matter.
But what is important in this context is the following: The algorithm's results in this matching context are quite sloppy in the sense, that the squares don't even touch each other to gain some more space. Still,the whole circle setting is so clever, that it can afford this generosity and still wins! After then, some humans often polish the evolved solution and claim the victory. What's perfectly fine, the whole log exists.
If it's worth saying, but not worth its own post (even in Discussion), then it goes here.
