Rust: Topeak Super Tourist DX Tubular Rack

I recently installed the Super Tourist on my new bike and took it out for a ride (in the rain, of course... it's Ireland!). The next day the included screws holding the bracket arms were streaming rust on to my new paintwork.

I wonder if these are stainless steel screws. Shouldn't good quality SS not rust so quickly? Anyone here invest in titanium screws?
