Particulate residue in Racor bowl

Hello, mostly new here...anyone willing to chime in on fouled Racor water separator bowl. Winterized yesterday and as is normal routine, I replace both primary and secondary fuel filters (and fuel lift filter as needed), I took off the primary filter, bowl connected, and notice excessive amount of freely floating tannish particulate matter in the bowl and a coating of residue on the clear part of the bowl. It is not black, or sludge like in appearance. And the boat shows no symptoms of fuel issues while underway. Small amount of white smoke upon start up after a week or so of non use, but clears up quickly. I regularly use biocides, fuel cleaner and water dissolver.
I'd be interested in hearing from someone and I apologize up front if this topic as been discussed to death.
