This isn't affecting heating, but it does need to be repaired because if the paint gets damaged inside, the microwaves can arc out and short out the magnetron. There is a microwave cavity paint you can purchase to re-spray the area that is damaged. Sand down the areas were the paint is peeling and below is a link to the paint you'd need to order and use to re-spray the areas with no paint.
