Is this normal quartz plaster discoloration?

We’ve had our pool for 2.5 months now, and the discoloration of the blue plaster on the sun shelf and the steps doesn’t appear to be getting any better. The PB told me that after a couple of months of brushing, it’d clear up and normalize, but it doesn’t appear to be changing at all. This is my first pool, so curious if this is normal for a colored quartz plaster, or if I have a bigger issue.

When you feel the surface of the plaster in these spots, it feels a lot smoother than the surrounding areas, almost as if it’s just slightly built up.

Thanks!

Mine had a haze ( quartzscape ) on it and after several months of trying things they had me drain it and acid washed it..I didn't like that idea at first but made a big difference.

Yes, pretty much from what I remember..He had me drop the PH down to 6.8 and then said add 2 more gallons and I finally said NO your going to burn my equipment up :)
Few days later he said the plaster company said it needs acid washing..Biggest hassle is draining and having to refill and pay for water and chemicals but it helped a lot..
My issue was I eliminated a PB and hired a "plaster guy" which saved me money but also lost some cust service

If nothing else make the PB pay for chemicals to re balance it again.
