No, it does not mark the lens as it turns. It does not have a rubberized surface. What it has is more in the narure of a slim (I'd estimate 1/64th inch) strip of a teflon-type material that is attached to the lens collar. As you turn the lens into portrait mode, it rides on this thing strip. If they had used rubber, it would not be able to turn as easily. Rubber would have made it drag and stick, rather than smothly rotate.
