This happens when there is too much heat or pressure from a buffer. Another option is it's a residue left behind by some of their product. It's also possible with a good cleaning they revealed a flaw in the paint that was hard to see previously. If you have more questions try to attach some pictures and I'd be happy to help.

Here's a pic of the hood. I'm not sure what to call it but it wasn't here before the detail.
