My seat is the same way, has a hole through the fabric and through the foam down to the metal frame

This was a fairly common issue, a few years ago there was a post almost every day regarding someones seat doing the same thing. Its the railing thaat cuts through everything, it goes faster if you keep your wallet in that pocket too.

I took a BFH and hit the sharp part into a rounded edge.

They sell memory foam for not a whole bunch at these fabric stores. Thats what I used, a 15 minute fix

Is this suppose to be with all 3rd gen's? I'm a big guy and would certainly feel something poking me if it were close enough the upholstery to put a hole in it. My seats are leather but I can't imagine that would matter in regard to the inside of the seat.

Well thats the thing, you really wont "feel" anything poking you, the seat just wears down and as you move or gt in and out, reposition yourself it moves the cushon just enough to start ripping it. It will eventually get through leather seats, which is why seat covers alone wont fix this issue, it just takes a bit longer for it to wear through. If you were to take the cover off enough to get you hand between the leather cover and cushon you would proably feel the cushon cut in the same place
