That does not look smokeable so I would venture to say it is not crack. :D

This looks like the clear coat was pinched in the stem from over torquing the bolts. I had this happen on a Easton carbon bar and it was no real issue. I would use carbon paste and a torque wrench to reinstall those bars. If you have a real concern for you, take it to the dealer and ask for their official opinion. Photos from a different angle with macro setting and better lighting might also assist to see the situation.
