Kevin, this is most likely the lube used during assembly. Clean it off and see what happens.

I have the exact same problem from the left rear side. It seems to be coming out of the black plugs. The other plugs are fine. Mine doesn't leek as much as yours. And it's only after riding the bike. It might be an o-ring problem. My bike has 12800km on it gonna mention it on the 15k service. Try and see if yours are leeking, go for a nice ride and once home take a paper towel and pass it over the black plugs and see if it's from there.
