2014 Summit HID's replaced due to "burning"

So the HID lenses on my 14 Summit started to have a frosty appearance inside directly infront of the projector lenses. The dealer confirmed it is not condensation and a non contact type temperature check showed 132 degrees when the lights were on. Has anyone else noticed these strange semi circular "burns" inside their lenses?

In my case both headlight assemblies were replaced under warranty. The dealer factory rep hasn't seen this before and is sending the defective units back for inspection.
