It may be the fork seals leaking and you are just seeing it drip off the compression adjusters? i would wash off the fork legs and double check your diagnostic.

If its the fork seals there may be a solution before you go stripping the forks down come back and let us know.

I will clean off both to be certain. I am in the Pensacola FL area FWIW. I don't see any sign of oil above the adjusters but better to be 100% sure before doing anything. I have the service manual so am aware of the drain bolts above the axle.
