Bought Used RX100 V – Lens Coating Scratches/Damage?

I purchased a pre-owned RX100 V via eBay and see what appear to be marks on the lens, including one in the center area.  Is this lens coating damage? I sent a message to the seller, who replied that he used a lens cloth to clean the lens. Are lens coating scratches serious? Do they affect image quality?

Lens coating damage spots?

I took some test shots of a white background using auto mode, but don't see any spots.

I also took these photos using auto mode. They look blurry/soft.
