Marks on Beauflor flooring

We have a 2018 Sunseeker MBS 2400W. Over time, our Beauflor flooring has been showing unusual marks that are occurring randomly throughout the coach. Weve tried cleaning with Simple Clean and water with no success. Even carefully used a Magic Erasure ( big no no I know) and it had absolutely no effect. These stains look to be imbedded in the flooring material.
Anyone have a similar experience and any success in eliminating the problem? Help greatly appreciated.

Part of the flooring design. Don't know why that was done, but that is what it is.

Its the mark in the left center of the pic ( looks like a worm. Not the original design. These marks appeared several months after delivery.

Could be something someone brought in on their shoes. I know it's not what you want to hear, but leave your shoes outside the door.

Maybe but I would think that would come off with conventional cleaning. We generally take our shoes off in the stairwell and there is no gouging of the flooring surface around the mark (like it was ground in.
Still a mystery to me.

Put a small spot of acetone or nail polish remover on a cloth and gently wipe the marks. Don't overdo it!

Its a guess....
Something on/in the wood under the flooring that has bled through the backing on the laminate. IMO

It does look like that, like perhaps a petroleum based caulk that was left on the floor decking underlayment in spots, that is now bleeding thru. If thats the case, I think the patient is terminal !!
