As a consequence of this precaution, the cleaning process only removes those debris that are loosely adhered to the film stock (e.g. dust and lint) but any strongly adhered debris are simply left on the film and noted during subsequent digital image processing.
Subsequent analysis during image reprocessing has revealed that during the missions foreign debris are present in the optical path of the camera system and can be seen in the seen in the photographic exposures.

Google Moon isn't the only source of artificial looking structures on the Moon. I had downloaded some pictures awhile ago from the Selena Moon mission and thankfully labeled them.

Jackson Crater (edited) Observation date : 2007.12.03

It reminded me of a Maya Pyramid
All of these images have been either re-sized/shaped, cropped or edited (adding text and highlights).
The Kaguya web site with the original images from the JAXA space program has been updated since I downloaded them. The original images can be found at this link using the "Observation Dates".
