i agree remove the screws i still think you picked up some kinda trash as you painted .
but removing a few screws will let you know if that is rust
it being rough in texture fits with trash in paint try scraping the spot
then re finish it if this was absorbent amount of moister you would have this on every screw on the wall
and mike and willie no periods but maybe you can understand me now :p

could be rust, looks like a section of outside wall framing/ tee might not have good insulation and is allowing cool air/ moisture in. just a thought
The older I get the better I was

I checked each spot with a magnet, they're screw heads. Either that, or very magnetic dirt. I'll dig one out and see what's what.
