I would say, those lopes look good. A close up picture of the nose of the lopes would give us a better idea.
Run your nail over the cam lope and see if you can feel any irregularities/scratches.

Nope, Intake cam looks good.
To compare, Anything you see on the exhaust cam is normal.

@Dietsch Werks @CRG53 @Mad MaTTer thank you all for your input. It certainly puts my mind at ease for the next few thousand miles. Now to consider blocking off the oil coolers.
