They are not random paint drops. They are clearly located at the peaks of the chisel marks and plaster. They are planar leveling marks.

EoH is claiming that at the quarry they were in such a hurry to paint their salutation that the mason meant to draw a horizontal line (viper) across the middle of a text stream but somehow erroneously painted all the way at the top. Not even close to the middle. And then left a few stray drops right there in the royal cartouche. Yet all the other glyphs are well within compliance of proper placement.
