Are dhammas perfect or imperfect?

They seems to be imperfect, because they are impermanent
But they are also have perfection because they exist, because they are product of causes, like a bodies of living beings are perfect for their environement, or any other dhamma which is perfect in his existence, apropriate and made by it's invironement, made by causes.

What do you think?

"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "
