Paint rub on door jam.

Has anyone else noticed some marring of the paint on the door jam above the lock just below the level of the bottom of the window?

Just spotted this on mine today. There is a clear urging mark that has taken the clear coat off the paint. It is on both sides, worse on the driver side.

It looks like it has been caused by the rubber seal mounted on the door.

Will post if I get time and can figure out how to do so.

I've got this as well, along with some white discolouration where water has run.

I often notice little gaps where water can get in and hope it comes out somewhere...
This is what I have... (with a close up). If you close the door you can find the matching area of rubber seal and feel how rough it is.
