Default Fold Flat Seat Hinges Chaffing Upholstery

I was cleaning the windows on my 2013 Ram today and somehow started looking at the hinges on the rear seats. They are painted metal and do not have a smooth edge, especially at the top where it is a 90 degree angle. I have only raised and lowered the seats one time to see how the fold flat floor system works. As I looked closely, I noticed very fine chaffing where the corner of the hinge rubs along the upholstery. Nothing is ripped, but I would imagine after raising / lowering the seats many times it would turn into a major repair. Now I have to figure something out to put along the edge of the hinges where they contact the upholstery; like a plastic corner guard. Does anyone else with the fold flat seats have a similar situation, and for those of you who have raised / lowered the seats often, are there any rips or worn spots?

I looked at new 2013 Rams on ebay, and the hinges / condition is exactly like mine. Anyone have accelerated wear due to the hinges catching the upholstery?
