Fiocchi Lebel Cal.8 scratched primers

What is being indicated by these scratches? Ammo looks new (not reloaded) to me. All came from a bag of ammo.

There seems to be a burr on the standing-breech or the actual
Firing pin is dragging on the primer.
Since the cartridges came “loose”, it is more likely user damage than factory damage.

I have noticed this on older cartridges of all calibers, agree the DocAV4901, loading machinery issue. But we may be wrong ? :-)
