Most likely ambient air/moisture getting inside. It's suppose to be sealed so that doesn't happen. If there are no rock chips nor damage, it could be warrantied.

I wonder if the bulb socket isn't properly seated.

I get a small amount occasionally and just put it down to atmospheric moisture getting in through the bulb socket, which I doubt would ever have 100% seal.
I haven't looked at it but if it's like my DR there could be an opening at the bottom of the cover to let it breathe.
