Ours looks exactly as you describe yours. But we are not experiencing any leaks.
I should mention that -- if I understand you correctly -- it is not a hawse hole. It's an overflow deck drain, to supplement the deck scuppers in case of large boarding seas. So definitely don't use it as a hawse hole as it's not designed to be one.
I suppose if you have been using it as a hawse hole, you could have placed enough load on the bronze fitting to break the seal that is formed by the bedding compound. Even if you're not using it as a hawse hole, it could be the bedding is just getting tired.
It's been a while since I studied ours, but it seems to me it would be relatively easy to re-bed those fittings. Since this is your prime suspect, makes sense to start there. Often it's a process of elimination when chasing these sorts of leaks -- and sometimes due to migration you end up surprised at their true origins.
