Is it a problem to rest a hot meat pan on a table, remove it, and then immediately after rest a hot dairy pan on the same spot?

I've heard from a rabbi that if the table/countertops is a little bit wet (as it usually is) and the pot is hot, it will transfer the taste to the table/countertops. And then when you put another pot there it will transmit the absorbed taste. So I heard you should never put a hot meat pot on the same spot of a dairy one since the countertop might be wet.

Is this correct? I searched in books and on the internet and nowhere does it say it's prohibited.
