Given that info - it probably is not metal particles from your engine. If it was, there would surely be some shards and it wouldn't smear out perfectly. Note he doesn't say it is magnetic. Maybe it is anti-sieze.

I agree re the ubiqitous nature of shards on teh plug at every oil change -- maybe we should why you DON'T have them...

Clean the plug real well next time - then inspect.

I would not worry, but would do periodic oil analyses depending on my level of paranoia and/or curiosity.
