If most of the buttons (those "hairs") are still there, then should be fine - signs that it has not been run much. Even if the tyre has a problem, it should be under warranty.

A few reasons:
1. Vehicles, post production are stationary at the Co yard for some time. This time depends on the VIN of the vehicle.
2. Tires are slightly deflated prior to loading and transport in car container to ensure a larger footprint and less possibility of shifting once the vehicle is in its ruts. This is the most plausible reason.
3. Some careless nut at the production line did not inspect tire pressure properly/had a faulty gauge.

Don't worry, it is not a cause for concern.

Thank you. Yes, the 'hairs' were still there, plus thanks for reminding about tire warranty.

Thanks, I would like to think #2 too. It's an Oct 2012 vehicle so mind is at peace
