If you look at the damaged cylinder block...you will notice the voids between the ports are tapered..
If they were caused by a piece of metal..they would be consistant...not tapered..
The tapering of the grooves is caused by hydralic fluid screaming thru the breach between the ports..

A closer look at the slits in the valve plate shows only 1 damaged slit..the piece that initially contacted the cylinder block..
If the pump had ingested a piece of metal...all the slits would be hogged out...

The pump might not have been purged correctly when installed...causing this long term failure...
THIS DIDNT HAPPEN IN ONE DAY...
