New Construction - Seams

We are building and last week the texture and painting was completed. We can clearly see the seams of the drywall in the kitchen and great room ceilings. There are faint lines in the office and bonus room ceilings and even fainter lines in two bedrooms. The builder is claiming it is moisture and will dry out and go away. I have not seen that anywhere on the web as a reason. IMHO not a professional opinion the drywall guys rushed the job and made careless mistakes (for example they didn't protect 18 can lights that are now filled with texture, primer and paint). Floors are supposed to be going in this week so we want this resolved ASAP. Builder agreed to meet us on site today. Just wondering if any of the pros have some insight?
