To answer my own question, I did some digging and this evidently knowledgeable site claims that evidence for transport methods during the construction of Göbekli Tepe have not (yet) been found, but they suspect wooden sledges.But, unless the same wheel, with the same irregularities, started the same journey from the same spot every time, the grooves would still wear down in a fairly consistent manner along their entire length.
We know the "chariot grooves" at Pompeii were worn down by wheeled transport but they still bear something of a resemblance (albeit nowhere near as old) to the grooves across Malta.
