Rust near wiper hole on SW

My 2003 SW has a little bubble of rust that's maybe a 5p size patch just above the wiper hole on the back hatch. Is this common? Is there a known cause?

Cause is probably damage to the panel when the wiper motor has been replaced at some point long ago in its history. Its a galvanized panel so shouldn't rust, unless the galvanizing has been badly applied or damaged at some point. Its not very common, I've only seen a handful of rusty 156 SW bootlids.
