interior door issue

I installed a prehung interior door and for some reason the top of the door paint keeps rubbing off when its closed. Its obviously rubbing up against the door stop. I even took the door off and installed it again and its still doing it. Anyone have a clue what I can do to fix this?

Either slide top hinge 1/8 in from mortise middle hinge 1/16 in from mortise to make the top of the door not catch stops. Or move door stops in to prevent ( they are only nailed lightly to jambs)

Not sure the stop moulding can be rubbing off paint.
I can see the jamb rubbiing the door but not the stop.
The stop just keeps the door from going past the middle of the door.
How are you checking plumb and square?
And were exactly is it rubbing in relationship to the knob or hindges?

Maybe no primer, inferior paint and lock or strike plate is shutting the door too tight to the stop.
