if it's bare aluminum, what you're seeing is aluminum oxide. Aluminum
doesn't rust like iron, but it DOES oxidize. I'm guessing you have
aluminum that's anodized to give it the black color rather than painted
and that the anodizing has some small defect areas or pinholes that
aren't covered. You might try to get some warranty from the installer
(or supplier if you installed it yourself).
