Unfortunately, the problem is real..... Perhaps yours is okay, although you may want to test it out, since this defect has a real world consequence if you take a photo in low light with a timed shutter (I used 30 seconds).

This doesn't sound like a real-world problem, but a very contrived problem. When shooting low-light with a 30 second exposure, how often is a bright light shining directly at the mount (and not into the lens)?

Someone asked the question, how do we know this hasn't been the case for Nex cameras?  I'd also ask, how do we know that this hasn't been the case for other camera brands?  A quick search, and I found this:
