The brake pads may eventually wear down those scratches, but possibly at the expense of your brake pad service life, effectiveness, balance, etc.
Another vote for either steel wool, or a very light sandpaper. I wouldn't use any waxes or chemicals to buff it out.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.
