Used Nikon D300 question

I don't think it is mold. The specks look like... well, cracker crumbs. If that makes any sense.
Personally, I think it's odd. You don't need to be in a clean room to keep a camera fairly clean. The 300 is fairly well sealed, I shot one for a year or 2 professionally, changed lenses a lot, and never had to have it cleaned other than the self cleaning it does. Same goes for D800 I use now, and I've even carried it in horribly dusty places like Antelope Canyon. If you aren't changing lenses in a bad environment, it should not be collecting dust continually on the sensor. I'm betting it was somehow full of crud when you bought it and it's just now making it's way onto the sensor.
