debris in pan

My TH-350 is rebuilt with 200 miles on it. I decided to change the fluid ,thinking since it is rebuilt and all. When I dropped the pan I noticed a nice amount of fine metal dust. Most of it was collected by my magnet that I have on the pan.The 2 circles in the pan pic. were about an 1/8" high of dust .Then when I dropped the filter ,there were some more little pieces (not dust).What I am getting at is ,.. Is a re-built tranny like a re-built motor as far as stuff breaking in and having to change the fluids right away?Or is my tranny a slow bomb counting down?

Its supposed to break in and wear-in a little but to only have 200 miles on it it looks like too much to me. I believe I would go have a talk with whoever re-built it for you.

Well , it's a semi-race tranny,hard shifts ,2500 10"stall,all I know about the insides is that its got all raybestoes clutches and the forward and direct drums have extra clutches. Dunno. A lot of clutch material I guess.
