686 Cylinder crane issue?

I had cleaned my dad's 686, and while removing the cylinder from the crane I noticed a small divot at the center of the rod on which the cylinder rides. It didn't seem to cause any interference with the rotation of the cylinder so I'm not sure it's a defect or damage. Anyone else found this or know what it is?

So we're on the same page:

There is a hollow shaft on the yoke (S&W calls the crane a yoke) that fits into the cylinder.
Is that it, or is it the shorter, solid stud that fits into the frame?

A "divot" could be a factory "oops" or if its a small depression, it could be a mark left by a Rockwell hardness test to insure the part was hardened properly.

As long as it isn't affecting the operation there's nothing to be concerned about.

It's the yoke, small depression, perfect answer!
