I can almost assure you it's just from whoever worked on it last. They grease up the bolts/threads on most parts so they don't seize. If you've ever tried removing the oil filter and had a lot of trouble, that's what "seizing" is. Just wipe it off and keep an eye on it if you're concerned it's not normal. If more keeps appearing, start looking into it further or call a mechanic. Source: I've worked on my own car a couple times and have tried moving a seized bolt, it's nearly impossible. They recommend putting grease on it to prevent that. I've done it several times myself.
