zucchini cotyledon not perfect

I germinated zucchini seedlings via baggie method and planted the sprouts in the garden a few days ago. Most are up now but I notice on some cotyledons, there are imperfections. I'm sure they will be fine but I just wonder if it is because I transplanted from a coffee filter to the ground that they get these imperfections.

Coffie filter not the source of "problem"

Some cotyledons get misshapen when breaking away from the seed coat. It doesn't do any damage to the plant and the cotyledons won't be there long anyway.

Noinwi, thanks for that explanation makes me feel better. I will wait and see what happens.
