Regardless it should be taken care of.
I have this issue too. I have tried clay, polish, etc. Spots still there, especially on the little flat lip below the rear glass. I do detailing and have not found a product that removes it very well.
Oh, and as for the tire dressing, I've only used Griot's products and have had no issues. And the dealer has never, ever, washed/detailed my car. Ever. Nor will it ever go to a car wash place.
