Different lighting, different camera. I scratched a small X over what I thought was a crack. Now it looks like those cracks are remains of paint left by what ever was caught up in the wheel.

The rim is an off set rim with all the spoke hole ferrules pointed straight at the center of the hub. So all the spokes (x and radial) have some visible bending as the nipple is pulled so tight, the nipple stays perpendicular to the rim.
