Is this a problem? (please say it isn't)

I have found on 4 of the 6 corners on body of TT at slides. I am scared by what I see. Keeping fingers crossed that you other Jayco owners (330rlst in particular ) can tell me if this is a normal thing for slides to do. I have these pictures that I took Sunday--

Well I dont have a 330rlst but I do have a 2011 G2 25RKS which has one slide and the corners dont look like yours. I would have it looked at because I dont think that is the way it should look.

the separation at corner of slide opening, is some sort of narrow band of metal that goes around top and side that is painted and coming apart at corner

It appears more like dirt than a crack based on the photos. You most likely have two types of sealant on that slide and the one bonding the metal to the walls is getting moldy or dirty due to it's adheasion properties. If you have ladder maybe get up close to it and see if you can clean a test area with some mild soap.
The photos are tough to tell conclusively.

I was on ladder looking at them, can get your fingernail under them, DW says it's my imagination getting carried away. But I am worried

My slides are nothing like yours on my 2011. The black weather stripping is all the way around and tight against the slide so I have nothing to compare against.

To me it looks like someone tried to open the slide with the locks in place.

This is what a slide lock looks like.
