So I have an ASUS Strix Z270F and it was used from a little less than a year.

On the back of the motherboard there is some sort of oil accumulation on the plastic but it's not exactly oil and doesn't come off.

What is this phenomenon called?

EDIT:
Actually on the other side of the board there are power MOSFETs which tend to heat up a lot. So much so that they have their own heatsink.
I am guessing what has occurred is because of heating.

Still, I would like to know what this phenomenon is called.
