P225-A1 slide finish

Finally got a new 225-A1 classic carry. Love it so far but when I was cleaning out the factory oil I noticed the rail groves on the inside of the slide are rainbow colored like when you excessively heat metal.

Any thoughts if this could this be that the Nitron coating was not fully applied into this area or something like that? Could this lead to problems down the road making it worth sending it back to Sig before I shoot it? I know it is a gun and it will wear, but I am pretty picky about my stuff.

Appreciate the thoughts.

I was not clear how the process worked. This makes sense that they need to hold the slide somewhere and it is part of the process. It isn't noticeable on my 226. Can't get a pict that shows it with my available camera.
I know it is stupid but I am just super picky with my firearms.

Thanks again to All!!
