After close examination with a magnifier, I see that xm was right. Any tiny brown spots on the inside of the paper will correlate to a tiny spot of corrosion.

Easy way to tell is to spray a bit of clp and then rub the magazine with bare fingertips. No way to miss feeling the tiny pits grabbing your skin. The minty parts feel smooth as glass. A moving fingertip can feel texture changes only nanometers in size.
