Help! Why are there concentric rings in my photos?

Below is a 4MP jpeg export of a raw file from Lightroom. As you can see, there is a very nasty and obvious banding-like effect of some sort that looks like concentric rings. This is not jpeg compression because it was visible in Lightroom. I included a second version with boosted contrast to make the problem even more obvious, but clearly it is present without boosting contrast. I used a Sony A7Riv with a Tamron 28-200mm f2.8-5.6 along with a PolarPro Summit ND filter kit. I may have had a PolarPro UV filter on the lens as well, but I forget. Please help figure out what caused this and, most importantly, how to prevent it from happening again. Thank you.
