Over the weekend I took my posts off and sure enough at least half those posts had dug into the playfield and were very uneven and had sharp edges. Luckily other than directly under the posts hadn't caused any extensive damage. I sanded down the uneven posts and sourced a small black rubber and put a nylon clear washer under each post. Doesn't look too bad and hopefully will prevent any further damage under them.

Quoted from gumnut01:

Very neat! I could not find rubber washers that small and flat. Should do the trick.

So just for reference if people want to get the washers(rubber and nylon) I used here is the links from Amazon for the products I bought.
