This type of problem is not specific to the HomePod, in fact, all kinds of speakers (or anything with a silicone base like an Amazon Echo Dot) can cause these kinds of marks on wood. The marks should be able to be cleaned off and will fade gradually anyway, the brand says.
Two wrongs (or defects) don't make a right (or feature), however, and it's perfectly reasonable to expect to use smart speakers on common surfaces like desks and tables. For now, we would obviously recommend not placing your HomePod on a surface with an oil or wax finish if possible.

SAN FRANCISCO - Apple's new internet-connected speaker is proving to be more appealing to the ears than to the eyes, depending on where the device is placed. Consumer Reports recently filed a test which showed the same thing - Apple's HomePod was not as well liked as the One and Home Max. It's unclear why the HomePod's silicone base is reacting to different oil finishes, but AppleInsider spoke to professional woodworkers who said they've often seen a similar reaction between silicone and various furniture polishes. "But if you've bought an expensive Scandinavian sideboard or some handsome piece of wooden furniture and then got a mark on it from the speaker, you can imagine the horror". It could well be a chemistry issue with Apple's supplier of the HomePod's base, and thus something the company could correct on the production line.
HomePod owners have been tackling this regrettable issue through the use of social media in efforts to shed awareness of the matter, as well as express their obvious frustrations. Ferreira is both an Apple and Android fan and was completely disappointed with HomePod.
