Default 2012 Impreza Driver's knee airbag a danger for short people?

One of my daughters has recently started to learn to drive. She is very short/petite. I've noticed that when she is in the driver's seat of my 2012 Impreza, she has to bring the seat almost all of the way up in order to reach the pedals properly. In this position, her knees/legs are almost touching the bottom panel of the dash, the area where I believe the new knee airbag is located.

Is there a danger that, being so close to the knee airbag, should the airbag deploy, my daughter's knees/legs might be damaged from the "explosion" of the airbag coming out?

Come to think of it, she's also by necessity rather close up to the steering wheel as well, so perhaps in danage of that airbag too?

Sorry if this issue has already been addressed somewhere else and I msissed it!
