FWIW I have 9 carboys and most of them have blemishes like in your pictures. They've been there since I bought them 6 or 7 years ago. I believe they are caused by scratches or imperfections in the molds.

I don't trust this, clearly a full carboy is more weight than the empty the video shows. But I think it can't hurt, and while I never expect to drop a carboy, I think it would reduce the chance of shattered glass flying my direction.

Who knows, maybe after some time with my better bottle, I'll convert over- I just wish they came > 6G. I use a blowoff, but with many of my big beer fermentations the 6G would definitely overflow, 6.5G sometimes that doesn't happen.
You can get a 6.5 Gallon PLASTIC Big Mouth Bubbler.

Kidding aside, maybe I'll look for some other carboys or for some SS fermentors (but don't want this conicals; I've seen some simple SS pot-like fermentors on the ebay that could fit in my fermentation chamber).
There's a thread on here somewhere pointing to a kickstarter for a stainless steel "milk can" style fermenter. I'm in for one myself. Expected delivery date any time now.
