As someone who works with carbon fiber for a living, I'd clean up the divot-looking area to the bottom of the stay and then paint over it so that I forget it's there. In my experience, most carbon fiber things are fairly overbuilt. The chain drop mostly just abraded the stay which is far better than damage caused by impact.

YMMV.
