Buyer says lens flawed

A potential buyer of my 105 VR informed me that my 105mm VR has "dust and inclusions" inside the rear element and the defect was evident in all his photos taken with the lens. His observation took me by surprise since I have never noticed any spots when mounted on my former D700 nor my new D800. Below is one of the last photos I took with the lens - shots at f20 but maybe without a white background nor sky, the lens defects do not show up in this shot.  I am the original owner and the lens is still under warranty, but I ask, should I to ship it to Nikon for service in case I decide to sell it in the future?

D800, f20, 1/400 second
