notec is probably right. The lens can make the crack look like a bubble.
Remember that glass lenses are full of internal stresses, so cracks don't grow the same was as they do in other materials. They often look like bubbles in lenses.

Appears to be an impact crack to me too. A tiny little bump in the tube touching the lens and the vibration of the tube while firing has
cracked/chipped (is a better word), the lens. The chip in the glass causes it to look like a bubble, just as some rock chips in windshields
appear to be 'bubbles'.

Hard to say, if there are external marks on the scope, warranty claim may be denied.

BTW, is that 'bubble' causing you any trouble when using the scope to shoot? Zero moved, fogging,.etc??
