You could even try a light layer of glue then sprinkling dust from the plywood on top and GENTLY (400-600 grit) sanding it smooth, especially if you’re going to put a sealing finish on top of the whole thing. Use something long and flat to attach the sand paper to so that it is built up no higher than the original. Let it dry completely, mask it off and sprinkle some walnut dust on the walnut edge so they are flush and co-planer. Sand like it’s tissue paper. The area is small so I wouldn’t worry too much about the grain, just matching the color. Even Maple colored wood filler might work just as well.

I think the original problem is that the walnut was just slightly below the level of the ply.
