Default Changes in Pushrod color

I was looking back through my pictures of my LIM Gasket replacement and I noticed some of my pushrods are darker or lighter than others. My only guess would be a difference in heat. Any ideas on why some are darker than others?

Don't worry that'* before I put the new gasket on and cleaned everything up

Could be oil splash patterns as well.
