Perhaps one man's mold is anothers' bloom.
Mold comes in various colors. White is fairly common actually. Mold forms unevenly and tends to be splotchy, exactly like the cigars you took a photo of.

You could be dealing with old mold, basically happened some time ago, then the humidity issue was corrected, and the colony stopped growing and dried up. Think of a standing dead tree.

Perhaps ignorance is bliss to the misinformed and inexperienced.
