If it’s truly just carriage bolt heads, you may look at what’s on the bottom of the camper there and if it will damage anything. It might be ok?
But the safe no risk choice is to shim it all up. Thicker mat, or plywood or foam under your bed mat.

I had factory bed mat on my Ford and after 3 years of carrying camper, it made clear imprint that on flat bed, the weight of the camper rest on front and rear few inches of floor length.
Meaning you don't have to worry much about any support for center of camper floor and when the hitch will make lower point with the mat over the bed, I would just leave it like that.

I use a 3/4" horse stall mat to clear the camper bottom of the gooseneck hardware. Just cut out that section of mat rather than covering it and creating high spots.
