It's not a black mark, it's not like saying "I was refused entry to the US", all it means is that you officially left Canada but did not enter the US (basically stayed in no-man's-land - a la Edward Snowden), then re-entered Canada for the purposes of activating your PR. Border guards will distinguish between "Administrative refusal" and a regular "Refused entry".
You are perfectly right.

Easiest POE I've ever been through. As soon as I told the Canadian officer I had COPR, she asked if I'd like to land here (Kingsgate, BC) and I said yes. From there on in everyone was as nice as pie.

The US officer didn't question my 3-day weekend vacation at all.

I'm now a permanent resident! And just picked up my new '6' SIN.

Thanks everyone for your help.
