Are these chips concerning?

Picked up this tank for a pretty good price but didn’t realize it had these chips. To me, they don’t look super concerning because there are no actual cracks but wanted to get others thoughts.

I have no idea if these would represent a weak point that could create problems...though I would certainly sleep better without them : ) One of them is huge, and I would be more worried about how it happened - i.e. if the tank was dropped, which might have compromised it in other ways. Admittedly, I'm an overly cautious fellow when it comes to water damage...

So the larger on likely won’t have much stress on it since it is only holding water from the filtration chamber. I can’t speak to how it happened but I know the precious owner had it running for 6 months. He also bought it second hand
