This kinda sounds like a good old quality control error to me. The wheel
probably just got missed for some reason when that groove was originally
machined. I know one of my rear wheels has two indents machined in the
fins for the valve stem, one right next to the other. Since my other
rear wheel is normal I assume it was caused by a similar QC error.
