I think I found the culprit!

Lightroom seems to apply sharpening to all images upon import. Removing that reduced the amount of the black noise. (And of course made the image less sharp).

What do people use for sharpening with this camera?

Global (entire image) sharpening is generally not a good practice after a point (noise in background). Best to add sharpening locally by brushing it in where desired.

Note, I use Capture 1 so  not sure of LR process .
