I won't elaborate herein, but one possibility for trails or grooves left by boulders clearly having moved on the surface of a small moon is that it
was the larger body that moved and not the boulder.
Sounds carzy, yes? But not so crazy if you have the technological capabilities to move the larger body. If so, then the smaller bodies slide about
like your coffee cup does on the roof of your car as you drive off forgetting that it is there. Some boulders on small bodies will even slide off of
the surface of the larger and be lost if the impetus of motion on the larger is strong or long enough.
That phenenomena is exactly how Phobos got its hundreds of grooves and precisely what they never want you to know and why they don't release many
images on Phobos since the Vikings orbiters took hundreds of images to document that exact scene in the 1970s.
Phobos was moved into its tight, near perfect orbit by intelligent control.
