Your mount is fine. There is no reason to replace it.

A DIYer is not going to be able to replace those mounts. They are heat treated, coated, then heated up again and press fitted into the subframe hole while being heated as well. Of course we all replace with aftermarket ones that have a wide range of mounting tolerance to them but the oem design ones are very difficult to replace yourself and require complete removal of the entire subframe. VW charges a lot to replace those out of warranty for that very reason

One MM misalignment of the oem mounts can cause the entire engine to shift to or from the frame by 5-10+ MMs which is bad.
Just get a lower replacement and an insert for the top or the power flex hybrid

How are DIY'ers able to remove the mount completely (without cutting) and replace it with aftermarket ones if they undergo a heat cycle?

A bushing press tool would be what the dealership uses.

OP

What made you want to inspect it? Engine rock?

If so, how do the other mounts look? I know Iíve noticed a decent amount of engine rock but Iím also coming from a background of solid/poly mounts. Iím having VW take a look at them while they have it for the week Iím going away since I just bought the car a couple of weeks ago.

Because they take a press tool and press it out with the subframe off but reinstall of an oem puck is a pita. That's why no one ever does that. They just replace with a better, more durable aftermarket option
