I have seen this same thing many times. The overall surfaces are experiencing typical corrosion, which can be surprisingly difficult to prevent. The more extreme spots (especially the ones circled) were initiated by handling (bumped, scraped, dinged). The less extreme spots arise from debris that is no longer present, but facilitated and concentrated the chemical attach at those locations. These surfaces are not in the least unusual. Preventing this from happening requires considerable diligence and at least one of several available coatings. Note that if you coat a surface and it has any flaws, the attach will be much more pronounced at the flaws. See the attached paper.
