Yep, that's my opinion. I think this is being over thought. I have had more than one car that had crap build up in the overflow tank. Not one had a serious issue. I think some impurities got trapped in there, from Mfg assembly or something, and takes forever to burn off because its a sealed system. The tank is the highest point in the system, so it that's where it boils off to. Most likely, that's where it stays.
