I've imported my MetaMask seed phrase into XDEFI Wallet but all my balances are at 0, I have no assets in the "Owned" tab and the Ethereum public deposit address(es) generated after the import is/are not the same. What is the problem ?

This can result from two possibilities:
1. You have not imported the right seed phrase (ie not the one for your current MetaMask wallet) but another seed phrase
2. You have imported the right seed phrase but the account(s) you have in your MetaMask wallet has/have been manually imported via private key(s) and is/are not linked to your MetaMask wallet's seedphrase & private key
