Default Break in Lower Unit Oil Change

This came out of my 2016 DF140A after doing initial 20 hour maintenance. Oil looks very dark for only 20 hours.. lots of black came out.. no water in oil. Is this normal or is there a bigger issue at hand?

That is normal, nothing to worry about. The factory oil looks like that at the 20 hr.
