The rings are not bad enough to hurt accuracy, They are only bad looking.
Rings on the shoulder will not hurt the extraction but if they are on the chamber wall
they can effect the extraction especially the hot loads.
As Coyboy said, inspecting the chamber durring the reaming process will catch this and can
be eliminated before head space is final.
This has happened to every gunsmith at one time or another and as long as it is caught
It is not a problem.
There are lots of reasons for this to happen and if you talk to the smith he should set the
chamber back enough to clean it up.
A good chamber leaves no marks on the brass, so I would rate it bad but fixable.
