Angry Paint rubbed through under the hood

So I was washing my truck today. I was washing the engine compartment and noticed that the paint was rubbed completely through in 4 spots. It is on both sides on the underside of the hood. Its around the deal that you adjust to get the hood aligned. It appears to be rubbing on the black cover for the radiator. As much as I hate to visit the dealer it looks like I am headed back. I sure hope this will be addressed through warranty. Has anybody else seen this?

Were the hood supports not properly adjusted?

No there is a black fabric/plastic deal that covers the opening between the grill & the radaitor. That appears to be the issue. Not sure if it was installed wrong or what.

The same started happening on my truck so I just removed that piece completely. No problems now.

I remember touching up some areas with a light dusting of flat black spray paint.
