PERM Occupation Title (&Code) is Mechanical Engineer instead of Electrical Engineer

Hi All, I have my PERM approved and about to file I140. But, there is a mistake in the approved PERM. Occupation Title and SOC code are for Mechanical Engineer instead of Electrical Engineer and everything else including job title (Design Engineer), major field of study, job details and all the experiences are correct. My attorney said that is not a major issue and we can proceed with I140 filing and we can correct it when we do the next H1B/LCA extension. But, per my understanding, LCA and PERM/I140 are different documents and my I140 is always going to show the occupation title as Mechanical engineer even though we correct it during LCA extension. Did anyone of you face the same issue? If so, how you solved it? Or can someone guide me with a solution?

Thank you.
