That is sheer incompetence on the dealer's part.
I'd hold them to account on this - a properly fitted hex socket will not
round off the plug - regardless of how tight it may be. The plug would separate first.
I dunno - BF Easy-out? But, chit will fall into the well in any case, so head removal is probably unavoidable. On their
dime ... this is not part&parcel of the normal risks involved in 3V spark plug extraction.
