Are knots acceptable in wooden table?

Imma S
last month

We just received a dining table from Bassett which has a couple of small knots. We asked the customer service and they said what I have is up to factory standards.
My friend just told me that she ordered a dining set from C&B, and there was a knot on one of the chairs. She asked for an exchange and was able to get a new one.

My questions are:

  • Are knots like what I have in this photo acceptable or normal?
  • would you fill them or just leave them? This is a dining table and if we don’t fill there could be lots of crumbs etc

Thank you
