2.0+2.5 owners - P D R buttons wearing off a bit?

I replaced mine around 2 years ago...had it done with annual service, tire pressure sensors, etc...sorry, I don't remember how much it cost...

I've noticed a slight amount of ink wearing off my push button transmission buttons. Has anyone fixed this or even replaced the buttons? Curious what the options are. I like to have a like-new interior and this is a tiny niggle but couldn't hurt to ask!

Several people have mentioned in various threads of having the buttons replaced under warranty for this reason. It happened to me before I knew of the risk. I need to cover them like Mark77a did.

Is it a physical wear process, or something else? The P and R buttons look pretty worn on mine, but evenly so. You'd think R and D would be the most used, P and N almost never (at least the way I drive), so what's with P? N and D look about new.
