The extension shown at the arrow is meaningless. It does nothing and touches nothing. Don't worry about it.

The important surface is the one on the under side of the cam caps. If these are galled significantly, it's not something that you should touch up by hand. You can dress out LIGHT scoring manually, but you should then check the cam clearance with plastigage as shown in the manual. If the problem is more serious, specialty shops like Engine Dynamics can repair it very reasonably.
