That color of red is most likely over a base coat of white, basically the most common colors to crack because of how thick they are laid on. Seeing the crack in the paint follow the contour of the hanger doesn't seem all that surprising. Just an opinion from some guy on the internet, but it wouldn't worry me, not with how a pure carbon dropout is constructed.

Doh, you're right. Hadn't had my coffee yet. Still though, that most likely means it's where the bond joint is and with a heavy paint, cracking is almost inevitable. If it were me, I'd have my shop document it and then just keep an eye on it for changes. Chances are good it'll be fine long term.
