I just received these new old stock bottom bracket cups. But there's rust on their race as you can see the picture.
Should I keep them or it can make a problem?
P.S. I paid a lot premium for NOS condition.

They should be fine. The balls will polish out any imperfections in the bearing track soon enough.
