It's a judgement call by the refs as to whether it's intentional or not. If the robot goes to lift it, the sample wedges in the hole, and the robot pulls the ring apart, that's (probably) not going to be ruled intentional. If, OTOH, you bring the ring back to base, open it, and then deliver it open for some reason, that's clearly intentional damage.
Everything else is somewhere on the spectrum...
