Default Jetcat balancing

I have just bought a second hand Jetcat 160 which has 5 hours on the ecu.

I was surprised to see the standard of the grinding on the front wheel, which I have read online is nothing to worry about and is a second balance done when the engine is assembled?

Do Jetcat sell these as new with grinding like this on the front?

I see similar on mine. I am guessing they grind that particular location for a reason and looks hard to reach hence the freestyle grinding pattern.
