I started thinking about what Chop said, the dough being overworked. I made this batch yesterday, 7 minutes in the stand mixer rather than ten. I formed and shaped the dough balls with just my hands, no rolling pin, let them prove for a good hour

15 minutes at 375º, they came out the lightest and best batch I ever made. RAY

My mother taught me a stretch and fold technique for making uniform buns.
Put ball in your palm. Stretch from the palm side to the top side while rotating the ball.
Press the top down on pan and go 2nd rise until about 1/4 less than desired finished size.
I'll try to take photos the next time I make a batch.
