You're right...

...when I popped off the center wheel emblem (both sides), the inside was clean and dry. No grease, no dirt. It is indeed just brake dust on the outside. Tomorrow morning the car gets a bath!

One of those since cable channels needs to do an investigation "How does it work?" on brake dust and how it can end up in strange places. I vote for the "vortex" idea.

Thanks for your insights.
