Most all sapwoods rot, but some look nice as they do so we call it “spalting”. Much nicer term, I think anyway. Anyway, it’s more likely your wood source uses a sawyer that leaves their wood in the weather for a while before slicing it up. Most places prefer fresh wood, but many like spalted stuff. What the heck, looks good from here. So long as it isn’t pithy it should be just fine.
