I took the split rings off because I hate camera straps. I haven't noticed the lug bothering me at all.

However, if I found that it did, I would probably do something wild like get a small piece of cling film, lightly grease the lug, especially in the hole. Make a small hole in cling-film and pull it over the lug so that it passes through the hole and smooth it down to the camera body. Take some neutral cure silicone or tec-7 and get some into the strap lug hole and then add more all around the lug then wet a finger and shape the silicone into a nicely rounded hump.

When it cured, I would then rip the cling film from between the body and the silicone.
