Could be anything from something in the holster(if used) or gunk build up from your fingers. Have you tried cleaning it off with some solvent?

If anything you would think if it was holster wear it would be on the higher areas not inside the slide serrations. The only thing that touches it is CLP and a Alien gear holster.

Weird red orange wear within the slide serrations
I would suspect that it is some residue from combustion deposited while the slide is at, or near, the rear-most position, during ejection. Would you please provide a picture with the slide fully open?

Looks like copper/brass has worn off onto the finish if your slide.

Probably from the rivets on your jeans or something like that. The melonite is much harder than the other metal, and it rubs off onto the slide like metal scratching off on sandpaper.

I've had a bunch of marks on my slides from the rivets on my jeans before, so that's my guess. Rubbing with some oil (I use Fireclean) usually gets it off.
