I looked at your pictures and could not see the particles very well, but I´m sure they are there if you say so. The cables are straight, so it cannot be from them rubbing the pullies, then the plastic outside of the cables should have been damaged too.

My guess is that it could be from the spring rubbing against the cover, check that for marks. On my IIIa arm I had one spring that stood out of the original place, so it had a slight bend, upwarts and when I put the arm under load, it would scrape a bit , making a noise too.
