These headlamps are open to the enviroment so its gonna happen. This is for air exchange to let fog out. You can hook a vac to the vent and maybe suck some out or a hooker maybe

So this is a common issue that you'll have to live with?

I have seen/heard of it many times and im sure there are many more than dont notice or worry about it. I have it myself. But like I said I bet you can vac some out.

remove headlights and bulbs and use a blower to blow it out, then vacuum with a straw attachment (bottom right):
