You, or a water crossing.
When you washed your bike water got into the cavity. Since you plugged the hole it could not drain and sat there and corroded your plug. Leave the hole open. Think of all the bikes out there with totally exposed spark plugs, water isn’t a death sentence, but soaking in it can be bad.
Every overhead cam (or hemi) engine I’ve seen has a cavity in the head cover to house the spark plug, I don’t think there is any practical way around that.
