Would removing these threads on this pocket leave a mark?

I read that some pockets if you remove, before washing for the first time, would remove any evidence of stitching (or at least make it very minimal).

However, this is some more stitching, so I wonder if it's even possible to remove without much of a trace afterwards?

Those stitches look pretty thick, so I am a bit concerned.

What is the fabric like in real life? In my experience, the more texture it has (slubby linen, flannel, etc.), the less likely it is to show the holes.

My guess is they'll say it can't be done. My other guess is that if you're really careful, you might be able to do it, but the holes will always be at least slightly visible.
