Awning roof screws

While cleaning the roof of my holiday rambler today I noticed when I steppted on the plate that holds the electric awning to the roof, there was bubbles coming up where the screws and the caulk were. My question is probably the screws that HR used are some way junk, now if I remove all the caulk and put in new screws will there be aluminum under the roof or will it just go into the fiberglass roof? I have been on the roof checking seams and re-caulking but this is the first time I saw this condition. Any input or suggestions be very helpful.

It would seem to me that if there was bubbles coming up then you have moisture under the plate and needs to be checked before resealing and replacement of screws. Something like that should be fastening into a solid piece under the roof. Either a portion of the framing or a support piece placed for that purpose which well may be wood
