No, the .002-.003 choke is more likely a deliberate decision to not hone the chokes area when honing the bores. It gives the gun a little choke. If done several times you could end up with a set of barrels with .006-.010 choke if reproofed. Then the barrel with more than .008 choke could be marked as having choke. I saw a nice H &H that had been reproofed which had .006 and .010 choke which was later marked for choke. Seller explained this was odd but most likely reason for it.
