I used to have to routinely apologize to my riding buddies for my squeaky Look Deltas. Keos have been way better. I currently have about 15 sets of Keos, various models, ages, and wear. Some squeak a little, some none at all. The older, more worn sets I can count on to have a little squeak now and then. Almost always it is a little chewed up spot on the cleat or a little piece of debris on the cleat or the pedal. Since yours seems to be reproduced down to the pedal and not the cleat I think you're on the right track. Look for a rough spot under the front portion and lower back portion where the cleat engages. You can also try to adjust the release tension, see if that changes it.
