Mine does that, and coupled with the brake dust, that's a fairly common spot to collect brake dust. Another common spot for brake dust is the wheel lip rim, as well as the spot between that star cap and the wheel where it joins. Finally the third spot where brake dust likes to collect is at the sides of the spokes of these Bundts. PITA to clean each one but well worth it once it's nice and clean.

I know because I just washed my car and had to wipe that spot clean on both sides of the front wheels.

Pop the star cap out and see if there are any leaks. That's the surest way to find out, other than taking that wheel out of course.
