I’ve had my 718 AP3’s since late October and have only been able to use them at the range 2 times. I’ve noticed excessive club face wear on all of the irons, most notably on the PW and 48 degree wedge. I do not hitboff of mats and wipe off range balls before hitting. Does this wear appear excessive to anybody else? I’m being told it is normal wear and that the marks will wipe off (already cleaned them). Yes I know, many shots off of the toe ;)

Looks normal. You will actually get more "turf marks" on grass with sand base than you would off of the mats. These thin lines are where sand just under the grass is being pinched between the ball and the club face. Very normal. I never worry about betting against a guy who's bag is filled with shinny clubs. Beware of the guy with worn clubs dotted with lead tape. He will take your money every time.

Looks normal to me...does your range have a very sandy base?

The greater the loft, the more turf gets between the ball and the face. That's why you are seeing it more on the short irons. Also, I know you acknowledged the toe hits. Some of that might be swing and some might be too flat of a lie. Did you do a fitting? If not, try to catch a free Titleist Thursday and hit some of theirs with 2 degrees upright. Might make a difference. Titleist can bend 2 degrees for a nominal fee and they will stay under warranty.
