Matte ceramic tile "Rub Spots" - help!


I am installing 3 x 6 subway tiles as a back splash in our kitchen. They have a matte finish which i thought would be durable. My husband was cleaning some of the tiles last night, removing left over mastic. This morning there are marks on the tile where he was rubbing them. Please advise! (Our last backsplash tile was a nightmare with grease. I thought matte tile wouldn't have any "issues")

Thanks so much for responses.
Desperate in PA.

Could you post a picture? Have you washed them with soap and water yet?

Thanks, Mike. I am trying to delete my post. . . (new to the site. don't see a delete option) We discovered it was shadows from the vent light! Duh. . .
Quite a relief, needless to say. But thanks for being willing to help!!

We've all done sillier things then that, laugh and go on.
No mistakes, no trying new things and hopefully learning.
