Yeah, that's pretty much what I was saying and I'm glad you brought it up from personal experience with this particular product. The same occurs with real steel and the plastic holsters. If the finish is a good finish (ano or or other coating) it should be fine and the holster will see more wear than your gun (unless you are drawing a lot... like 100s and 100's of times).. the real wear issues on both the gun and the holster will occur with the introduction of crud. Keep everything as clean as possible and you should be good to go for a long time.
