Driver Seat Belt- Will it wear on the seat?

Anyone else worried about the potential wear on the seat caused by the seat belt?

I noticed during the first couple weeks of ownership that when I got in and out of the driver seat that I was catching the seat belt and pushing it into the driver seat. Over time seems like a potential problem with the seat eventually showing signs of wear. Reminded me of the problem the Model S has with wear wear and tear on the B pillar.
To address this I've now gotten into the habit when I get out of the seat to push the seat belt back along side the seat. See 2nd picture. It's now become a habit but I suspect over time there will be owner complaints.
Is this happening for other owners or am I overly concerned? Is there an adjustment that I'm missing to correct this?
