Upload real HDRs
Sorry to disappoint you, but if your 360 image has a lightness range of 0-1, it is not a real HDR image. Generally, images that have 8 bit depth or their values are capped between 0 and 1 aren't real HDRs.
In the future, we plan on not accepting 360 images. Therefore, we recommend you to only upload full HDR images.
Thanks for keeping it real!

UV maps names shouldn't be included in the material when you upload it.
Material bump intensity shouldn't be too strong
If you overdo bump intensity in Blender, you can get not only unrealistic look, but also shading artefacts.
DirectX normal map
Your normal maps don't match the OpenGL standard. The material will not look correct after being downloaded from the BlenderKit.

The nodes are organized in a confusing manner. This may cause inconvenience to BlenderKit users.
material Subsurface scattering radius
Subdivision surface scattering radius in Blender is in metric units and should rarely be over 0.05
Wood mapping on model
The wood should always be mapped with the grain oriented parallel to the longer side of the wooden part, then the material in the BlenderKit database will look great.
Plant leaves with the alpha channel overlapping
Leaves with the alpha channel overlap, this can lead to an unrealistic rendering of the plant.
Model Topology Issues
There are topology issues in this model, like double/overlapping faces, double vertices, non-manifold faces, subdivision surface artifacts, or similar.
Wrong meshes or missing parts
Some parts seem to be missing, for BlenderKit uploads, be sure everything is parented to a single parent and not to include (unparent) any extra hidden meshes.
