Carbon Forks Problem

I got a new bike (bianchi) on sunday, bought some new tyres today and when i removed the QR skewers, the paint fell of the inside of the front dropouts almost as if someone had done them too tight and cracked it.
Is this just one of those things that happens or should i take it back and complain?
Any replies appreciated

    Always happens.

    CF or aluminium dropouts won't corrode so don't worry about it.

    as covered in your earlier post.
