    Im pretty sure its not moisture it could be heat or oil residue, especially in parts where you tend to touch a lot

    I always like looking at my kit on the screen when it goes through the machine.
    No idea about the yellow you can always ask the officer what yellow is

    Yellow sometimes indicates organic material.
    It could be the jelly lubricant.
