Gaps and cracks in house

I've recently noticed quite a few gaps and cracks along the ceiling coving and skirting board joints. They are only hairline cracks but today I've found a bigger 3mm crack between the skirting board and the wall by the front door. I've sold the house to a first time buyer and a full structural report had been carried out two months ago, but I don't think subsidence was mentioned in the report. So if the gaps and cracks are not due to subsidence, could it be shrinkage or thermal cracks?

Are they cracks in the walls or in the plaster/paint?

I've got cracks in my paint work that aren't structurally problematic.
