Particles in Transmission Fluid

I recently purchased 2006 Damon Challenger F53 Chassis with 16017 miles.
It has the 6.8 Liter v10 engine. I checked the transmission fluid and noticed little particles in the fluid. They aren't hard because I can rub my fingers together and the will break-up. The fluid doesn't smell burned and the transmission shifts fine.
Does anyone have any ideas.

I also had rust on the tip of my dip stick and the local Ford Dealer told me not to worry, they see it all the time on V-10 RV's and trucks. A little condensation forms in those long dip sticks when the set up for awhile The more you drive the less you'll notice.

+1 Had a Ford V 10 coach for 8 years and saw the same thing, and was told not to worry.
