Default New Rotax Oil Tank Weeping??

Hi all, I could use some advice....I received my new Rotax from Van's a couple months ago. In preparation for the first engine start, I have been adding all the fluids, etc. I noticed a random drop of fresh oil on the floor, directly under the oil tank. It appears to be coming from these strange indentations on the bottom of the tank. I have no idea what these marks are for?? The oil is not coming from the drain plug or washer. I guess I could fill them in with pro-seal, or should I just drain the tank and get it replaced under warranty? Thanks for any thoughts...
