Plasma moly rings break in quickly and they do not need an agressive finish.

But if the goobers who honed your block thought that "moly rings" meant "chrome rings" as in chrome moly (this gets screwed up more times than I care to recount), the finish for a chrome ring would have been much too aggressive for the plasma moly rings and the rings may well have been permanently damaged as a result.
