Default Black stains on ext. paint under door?

Just bought a 2018 SE Camry a week ago and it's rained a couple of times since. Now I'm noticing black stains forming on the white paint under the doors which I'm assuming is from the rubber weather strip/gasket behind the door. I'll be taking it into the dealership but thought I'd post here to see if this is a known issue and what can be done about it. It's pretty unsightly and seems crazy for a brand new car to have this problem.
Thanks for any help.

Default Stains

Was wondering if you found a solution? 1 week in and after rain and 1st car wash I noticed discolorization on rocker panels under door as well as back bumper. Wondering if itís tire shine chemicals run off onto these parts or something else?

If under factory warranty go to the dealer and complain.

This seems standard on the new model. Water will drip down my doors for many hours after I wash it. If you look at new cars on a lot, they all have this. In my opinion this model is horrible with all the places that water drips from, after washing or rain. The same thing happens in the spoiler/trunk area.
