Fuji Refurbished X-T3 - Unremovable dirt on sensor

I got a good deal on a manufacturer refurbished X-T3 direct from Fuji's UK store. I was very pleased as it appeared to be perfect but I'd neglected to check the sensor for dirt and unfortunately I found some.

There are four of them and they don't look like the usual dirt spots, there is a small dark area with what looks to be an oily stain leeching out from the center.

My X-T10 developed one of these after a couple of years and it is now a permanent feature of the camera so I already suspected they wouldn't budge with a wet clean and I was correct.

I'm trying to weigh up whether to have the camera serviced or opt for a refund. In the meantime I was wondering if anyone knows exactly what these are and what makes them impossible to remove.
