these spots have nothing to do with your sanding- they are part of the natural wood. some natural and normal irregularities in the wood will cause some spots to be more absorbent than other areas causing these “spots” which are nothing more than density differences in the wood fibers.

unless you are going for the clean museum type look, I would leave those in and not worry about them, makes the wood projects remind us these are made of wood and are alive and warm and not plasticy and engineered.
