Why is the paintwork on the bottom of my car doors rough?

I bought a brand new Toyota Aygo on Thursday. This morning I noticed the paint work all the way along the bottom on both sides feels rough and looks a little bobbly. The line is perfectly straight so if it was damaged I suspect it wouldn’t be this neat Is it a protective coat? Is it normal?

That's 'stone chip' under the paint which is a soft coating designed to absorb impacts from small stones without the paint chipping.
