Should the interior sidewalls of my Demeyere Intense pots be perfectly smooth?

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I’m still very new to this kind of cookware.

I recently bought a set of Demeyere Intense cookware from Costco. I went to cook with the 5.5 qt pot for the first time yesterday and immediately noticed that the interior sidewalls toward the bottom are not completely smooth, but have a raw grainy texture. It’s not visible but I can feel it when I brush my fingers over it. I tried two applications of bar keeper’s friend but that didn’t seem to have much effect. I checked the other pieces in the set and they’re the same way. Is this normal? The crappy disk-bottom cookware I was familiar with before had a completely smooth texture. I still ended up cooking with the pot and it seemed to perform and clean up like it should, so otherwise I have no complaints, but the texture remains.

Thanks in advance! :)
