The first time I removed the plug I shit myself, I guess it had picked up th residual slithers that had not been removed previously and it looked bad...but never had any gearbox problems.
I think the dark stuff is residue from the clutch friction plates as they wear over time and and accumulate in the sump with the slithers.

That's exactly what it looked like
i figured as much...the first time i changed my oil after the install i was like but anyways yes thats normal.
the way i see it is, its better on the magnet then cycling through my motor. heck my last wr went over 10k miles never needed a valve adjust or anything...
