Rub Marks ugh

Ugh, so I've had my 2012 camaro over 3 years now, picked it up in May 2012 from the dealer showroom (don't know if it was produced early in the year or late as I've read they changed the mechanism in the middle ofthe year) and it only has about 13,000 miles on it. At the dealer they offered an extended 5 year unlimited mile bumper to bumper warranty, I don't remember all the details and dont have the paper work on me this second. I never had any problems with the roof, my car has always been dry and never had any rub problems before, but recently I started noticing a rub mark over the drivers door and it's slowly getting worse. I decided to lower the top and take a look and it is rubbing where the top is folded over against where the body panels end and the open section that the top is supposed to sit in. I haven't noticed anyone having posted pics with rubbing in this area before, is this location common and how would this be corrected/prevented?

I seem to be having problems uploading the pic here so here are links to them

Mine rubs in the exact same spot against the car. I now get out of the car after putting the top down and push down on the top retracted and it will go down past the rub zone but I have no idea what happens while driving with the wind.
