Mine were delivered with some fogging inside the plastic. I fixed this when replacing and re-aligning my headlights. When I took the covers off there was a large amount of a white substance underneath and it was not salt. I think it might be from initial polishing of the paintwork as it was quite difficult to remove.
BTW do not try to polish inside the headlight cover, it scratches VERY easily. In the end I removed all the fogging by mixing a little dish washer detergent with water and swishing it inside the cover, rinsing it out with hot water and shaking them dry (so that no droplets would leave marks on the inside). I let them dry for a day (we have very low humidity :)) The plastic now looks significantly clearer than it did initially.
I think the white drops you are seeing are from the polishing compound that is left behind the haedlight covers.
