Chip in CF seat stay?

I had a pantsfull of bad luck last Sat AM on my way to a club ride. You can read the tragic details in the post referenced here.

Catastrophic Rear derailer failure!

The question is when the RD exploded something chipped the top of the seat stay about 3" above the dropout and chipped the CF. Can that/should that be inspected and repaired? The chip is more than paint.

If so, where do I find a shop that can repair it?

Thanks in advance.

Take or send the bike to the company/dealer that sold/made it. They can answer your question correctly. All other answers are just opinions. Roger
