That's all it is.  Similar to the change they made to the #35 Palpatine.  Original production shots had him using Anakins Blue lightsabe to attack Mace and friends.  So hasbro produced him with a blue saber.  In post production they reshot the scene with Palps using his own saber.  By this time Hasbro had already begun production and sent out the blue saber anyways then release the correct red one.  My guess is something similar with anakin.  He had dark circles around his eyes then they changed their minds and gave him eyes more like the emperor and hasbro got stuck with a bunch of racoon eyes anakins that they had to ship out anyways.

And my take on it was that it was an intentional repaint - not an error correction. In ROTS, we see Ani looking haggared and tired, hence the raccoon eyes. When he whacks the Separatist leaders, we get the famous "Sith eyes" shot, which Hasbro determined was memorable enough to commemorate with a unique version of Ani. Great idea - for about as minor a paint change as they could ever make, they're getting an extra $10 out of the majority of us collectors.
