Best way to disguise this damage to new door

Hi guys,

I've had a new door installed and didn't like the door nails so removed and replaced them. Most came out ok but some left the imprint of the old door nails.

The wood is a spanish hardwood similar to teak and stained.

What would be the best way to fill these holes without it being obvious. Would wood filler and re stain look ok? Do fillers come in a colour to match?

Any guidance would be appreciated.

sand and stain, no need for filler, wood is not a mirror.

Would have looked better if you'd done it before putting in the new nails
