I'm afraid the answer is yes - you do need to move it. The engineer fits another part between the faceplate and the wall-mounted part. This will add about 23mm, nearly an inch, to the depth of the assembly. See the socket as it probably is at Step 3 on this page
, then scroll down to Step 6, where the positioning of an iPlate is shown. The part he fits is not an iPlate but goes in the same place.
The finished socket look like the picture on this page
If that means the wardrobe will intrude too far into the room space, you can ask the engineer to move the master socket to a more convenient location using the Home Wiring Solution
, (also called a Data Extension Kit), which is currently available free with BT Infinity orders. Note that if you order FTTC from another provider you may need to order that as well. It isn't always automatic.
