If you hack at any plastic blank with a scraper and leave little divots all over the place they will nicely fill in as little white spots (aka bubbles) with any sanding / wax / polish.

If they were buffing and were WAAAAY too agressive they might be able to heat the blank enough to create some interesting surface texture on it. I would think it would smell pretty bad at that point though.....

If the blank had embedded organic matter that connected to the surface after turning it could wick moisture (water / hot wax) into the blank and look pretty funny after being polished.

Might have nothing to do with what your customer saw, but it's a thought.
