Default Strange marks on ebony/wood back Moto X

Hi. Just wanted to see if this is a normal occurrence for the Moto X wood back, or if it's something I should ask about since I'm still in my 2 week trial period.

I ordered an ebony-backed Moto X, and I am seeing some irregularities in what looks like the coating on the wood. I thought it might just be dirt, but it won't wipe off with water.

Is it just normal wear? If it's wear, I would hope eventually the entire back panel would look more consistent.

Hi, I had the same ebony phone and I can tell you from experience that mark is from putting the phone in a TPU case. I also tried to rub it off using water and LCD screen cleaner and it would not go away. I returned it because of my OCD.
