E90 Door Sill Strip Bleached

Good afternoon everyone!
So I brought my E90 328i in for detailing the other day and when I went to pick it up the door sill strips on 3 of the 4 doors were spotted white. I know it wasnt there before but they claim that none of their chemicals could have possibly bleached it. Has anyone else ever experienced such an issue? Any ideas on what it possibly could have been? Thanks for all your help.

A solution could be on the one that isnt bleached, can you bring it back and ask them to clean it with what they use and see if it becomes the same as the other 3? That will determine if its caused by the product they use.

So I went to my dealership and they said it was most likely wheel cleaner. I went back to the detailer and they replace the sills, so all is well!
