Default Black spots on stem and leaves?

I was preparing to plant some new banana plants I got a week ago in the ground today and noticed that on two out of the three plants have started getting black spots on their stems and one leaf per plant. Is this normal? I got the two from the same nursery, inspected the roots when they arrived (no rot seen), and had very minor discoloration at the time on the stems but thought it was due to shipping.

[RESOLVED] Never found out what the black spots were but they continued to grow in size and were present throughout the entire pstem. I ended up throwing them away so as to not have whatever they were afflicted with infect my healthy plants.
