Some of the cracks look like simple end checking(hard to say without knowing where in the board they came from). Most of it (or possibly all), is interior checking, or ‘honeycomb’. It’s a drying defect and almost always a kiln drying defect. It’s not normal or natural and shouldn’t be accepted as such.

Glad they replaced it for you.
