The center is clear, but you can see the edges of these spots. There seem almost to be etched in or something
Some of them will etch. That's just how it is for a DD. If you clean regularly and keep your car protected, it keeps this to a minimum, but occasionally, one or two spots will just be a PITA and leave their mark behind.

I take very good care of my paint, yet every six months or so, I have a few water spot marks that need to be polished out, along with the usual mild swirls that you get over time. I've learned to accept it as something beyond my control.
