You might try to raise the divots rather than sanding down the area around them. Try dampening a few divots and laying a damp towel over them and applying a warm iron. (setting somewhat lower than "Cotton".)
Trial and error as to how long to leave the iron on the towel.
I've done this on solid wood and some plywoods. Sometimes it works well and other times, not so well. But, it's worth a try.

Do you think it will work on veneer hardwood? (I'm not sure what plywood is, is it the same as veneer hardwood?)
No, I don't think it's the same. I suggest you try it on an inconspicuous spot. If it's actual hardwood veneer, as opposed to hardboard with an applied grain, it should work fine.Not too wet, just dampen the divot and apply the barely damp towel and heat.
