Do you ArmourAll it? It looks pretty shiny, but it could just be the lighting and angle. Something that gives it a 'wet' look might help hide it, but as with other products people mentioned it would only be a temporary solution. Plus, any 'product' would need applied all over similar panels for everything to match.
I used to be nit-picky of everything on my vehicle when I first bought it. It took a while, but I learned to let some things go. I have a scratch on my Driver's Side A-pillar trim among other things when I bought it. It bugged me a while, impossible to fix without replacing, but I used my fingernail to make it lay to where it doesn't look so bad. Eventually, you'll come to the realization that if you're actually going to use your vehicle, it's not going to look like a show car and will acquire nicks over time. You can spend hundreds or thousands trying to replace parts to keep it pristine, but something else will happen, or the new plastics won't match your already UV faded panels, or you cause another problem trying to fix another cosmetic issue.
One of the reasons I haven't really considered taking my door panels off for speaker upgrades is that I currently have no squeaks or rubbing. In my past experience with cars, the plastic trim tabs never secure as well once removed and each time you remove them the splines get worse. Something to consider unless you want to buy new sets of trim tabs.
I write all of this, but in my opinion what it really comes down to is that scratch is in the back of your vehicle, out of sight to drivers and passengers, and probably not even that noticeable to the rare person [other than you] that accesses the rear hatch. It probably will get scratched again by some cargo you haul in the future or slipping up while re-installing the tonneau cover. I'd leave it be.
