How does dampstaining occur?

Folks,

A number of my older dust jackets have spots characterised by discolored 
irregularly shaped outlines. Often the discoloration is limited only to 
the outlines themselves. I've come to understand that these are called 
dampstains. How does this happen when there's no other evidence that the 
dust jackets or books have ever been wet?
