Are you talking about the line wrapping around it?
if it’s deep it “might “ mess up the transoutput shaft seal were they mate up.
If not it should be fine, but if you’re concerned enough about it to post a question I would change it for peace of mind.

Take a good straight edge across the end of the shaft. File a raised metal around the divot.
The chamfer there to make slipping the shaft past the transmission case seal easier.
Clean the outer circumference of the shaft to get rid of the mark left by the seal lip. If you can catch your fingernail in it replace the shaft.
Looks like somebody used a chisel to separate the cases.
