Gitzo Carbon Fiber tripod problem

I recently ordered a $700 Gitzo tripod(online) from a reputable retailer that I have used for many years. When I unboxed the tripod I immediately noticed that the finish was partially rubbed off (see photo) adjacent to all of the twist locks. I suspect I may have receive a used product but wonder if this a known issue with twist locks on carbon fiber legs (in the past I have only owned tripods with flip locks)

I immediately returned the tripod for a refund.
