Actually, it's nails & some sort of plastic "thing", not a 3m deal I'm not worried about the holes as I could have spactle (sp) them - It's all the nails. So I believe you're trying say don't list.
It really wasn't until maybe 15 yrs ago that I even used a check in sheet - usually just took pics.
When we were tenants many yrs ago landlord said "there are 14 nail holes in this rental - that's it". Needless to say - no more put in. Was he too picky - maybe so :)

I always fill nail holes after every move out. I specify in lease that tenant is NOT to do this. They can ruin your walls in a hurry if they do it wrong.

In lease I allow small holes but charge for anything over 1/4", a few bucks for small and $5 for 1/2" holes - after all they are permanent damage to the wall. ( just had someone move out that left 32ea 1/2" holes!)

The plastic thing in your wall hole is an anchor, you can pull them out with needle nose pliers and then patch the hole.

    you can't control the hole thing.
    I count the holes and list the quantity. I charge when the matter becomes excessive or if it appears screws or more complicated repairs are necessary.
