One character's backstory has strong parallels with dysphoria, but this backstory (found in diaries) is completely optional to read.

(Spoilers!!) There seems to be a theme where all the humans that are evil and abusive are overweight, such as Todd Williams and the man who was killed by his android. While this could probably make someone with Body Dysmorphia uncomfortable (it sure does make me uncomfortable), there is not any characters with the disorder.

Ep 90 deals pretty heavily with people who hate their bodies and are exercising obsessively to change them, as well as turning that theme up in body-horror contexts. A few other episodes dip into the same theme for a few lines
