600mm f4 front element

I recently sent in my 600mm f4 lens which is under warranty to servicing due to 2 spots that I could not clean, which I suspected was dust on the inside.

I received a call from Sony technician saying it is scratched. I did not damage it to my knowledge. How easy is it to scratch a front element? The scratches are circular and not a line.

I checked my original lens cap and the hard back is not damaged to even touch the front element. I don’t shoot near the beach or sandy environment. I don’t carry my lens facing up as that would risk debris falling onto the glass.

Any idea what’s the cost to fix it?

I know it does not affect IQ but it sure bugs the hell out of me..
