Do Trail Grapplers Chunk?

My next set of tires will be size 295/65/20, in Nitto Trail Grappler or Toyo MT. In looking at several photos of the Trail Grapplers on the internet, I've noticed what looks to be chunking on the edges of the center tread blocks. Is this common for Trail Grapplers?

I currently have 275/65/20 Toyo MTs with about 40k miles and they have never had any chunking - even though I had them siped when new. The Nittos currently run about $100 less per tire than the Toyos.

Thanks for the input.

Those pics don't have any chunking that's the way nittos are cut. I've had both the nittos have slightly larger voids which equals slightly more traction and less tread life. They are good tires.
