You probably want to check the cost basis reported for your B purchase. I imagine that the A sale generated a loss and a part of it became part of the (adjusted) cost basis of B purchase. But as you sold B shares too on 2020 there is no wash sale to be reported.

On a wash sale the disallowed loss becomes part of the cost basis of the repurchased shares (B), and as you sold them the same year that should end the story.
