By the time you get done fitting a custom aftermarket barrel and match grade bushing to a Colt slide the barrel will look like that.
At least you know that you have a nice close tolerance barrel with no slop to the fit.
I wouldn't be concerned about it.
Well I have talked to sig and two different gun shops and everyone is saying the same thing!..... That it's normal. Especially Sense I am shooting .357sig that it is a really high pressured round. That it will cause a lot of finish wear.

My P220 barrel looks exactly the same as yours.
It has looked exactly the same way for ages. The initially installed barrel is quite tight with regard to tolerance and it just slightly wears in AKA it "mates" to the slide right away and then it just stays that way.
All of my Colt 1911s have ED Brown barrels and Brown bushings and they all look that way except for the fact that they are natural Stainless in coloration so you don't notice it as much because it doesn't "jump out" at you.
