You bring the guitar back and tell them "I just paid for a setup, and the strings are buzzing. Do it again, but better."
You'll get better answers than from me I'm sure - I think the answer is "yes" but then again its also possible to have a ton of space between your strings and your frets. My understanding so far is that you've got to find a good balance based on the particular guitar in your hand as quality and characteristics vary per guitar.

I'm trying to learn to setup my gear myself and believe this book has helped me a lot:

Depends on what type of guitar you have. I had my semi-cheap 300$ Epiphone Les Paul set up but still had fret buzz later on, couldn't have low action either. Later I learned the frets were uneven. It's not the same for my Agile which I paid more for it and currently have no fret buzz at all.
ou need to raise the action... normally with an alun key. mines on my tremelo. hope thats helped
what specs your MIM strat have? because some with 7.25 and even 9.5 necks can buzz a little, mine's a 7.25"-er and has a little buzz when i literally assault the strings with my plectrum, but otherwise it's fine.
Belief is a beautiful armour but makes for the heaviest sword.
just was wondering about radius really... probs a 9.5er

it's possible, but i think compromises may have to be made ie action needs to go up.
