I don't think the groove was actually that bad. I think the only problem was the sharpness of the groove. Worn biners are usually stronger than new ones.

Worn biners have been shown to better concentrated the force along the spine and break at higher loads

The rope is forced into the part of the biner that can take more of a load. The biner itself is not stronger.
