The front page section placeholders were intended to only be visible when the theme options section was expanded, so that the preview is an accurate representation of the front end of the site. When the theme options section is expanded, the placeholders are shown along with borders on each section, to clarify where each option is applied on the site and where additional content can be added.
Currently in trunk, the placeholders are visible when the customizer loads, then properly toggle with the theme options section's exxpanded state. They should be hidden when the customizer first loads. One could argue that the current behavior improves discoverability, but it is more likely to cause annoyance when extra section placeholders continue to show up after initial theme setup, and starter content reduces the need for placeholders showing initially.
Not milestoning yet as it needs a patch, but this should probably be in 4.7.
