This was plated in hard chrome recently. I never noticed it before. Everything functions fine though.

Are you sure this is a crack? Looks like some metal was removed from the area, possibly to allow cylinder to move out. Maybe it is filed this way and what you think is a crack is small remains of filing?

Could be contained to the Frame Lug.   Since your gun is chrome plated, perhaps obtain one from a. %Stsinless N frame?

Yeah, looks like it was shaved down some, then cracked. Here's mine, which I believe unaltered:

Still not sure what it actually does.

It stops the cylinder from moving to the rear when the extractor rod is pushed. In the S&W these are pressed in to the frame.

That is a pressed in piece. Its purpose is to keep the cylinder on the crane when it is swung out for loading/reloading. They are the cylinder stop, iirc.
The differences that can be seen are related to your cylinders, one cylinder has "supported" case rim's, and the othe cylinder has " exposed " case rim's.
I'm not sure that the piece in the o.p.'s photo is cracked, but it doesn't look to be the frame, but is the cylinder stop. Run it until it falls out, or replace now if you see fit. They once were inexpensive enough, but I cannot speak for recent pricing or availability
