similar to what i said above. the brake fluid doesnt circulate thru the system so the portion of fluid that is closest to each caliper is what is being heated the most and will bread down quickest and is also the site where most moisture can usually get in unless you take your cap of the master cylinder all the time.

I believe the master cylinder is vented and the air will exchange moisture with the brake fluid. From there the moisture would, in my opinion, even it self out through out the system. I don't think it like water mixing with gas and dropping to the lowest point. More like humidity equalizes in air.

I am not as sure about burned fluid. But I have seen dark color fluid in the reservoir so I am thinking it circulates or migrates somehow.
