Dust/dirt does not adhere to coolant......you photo shows a trans cooler line leaking. The leak point in the photo is generally where they fail.....the hose to barb interface.

Cooler line failures are more common when operated in colder climates....like the Midwest and North.

Could this in any way be related to Special Coverage 14773 - Coolant leak, drip on auto trans shifter grommet?

No, sorry bout that......entirely different leak point.

As you can see in my sig we are experiencing the same weather.....and, my 12 eco had the same failure.
Traded it in though so the dealer took care of it prior to resale.

Not knowing your capabilities I really cannot say if this is a DIY job but it certainly is not the most difficult service to perform.

Wow, I work less than 10 miles away from you lol. One last question, in your opinion, could this be related to a dealer error replacing the temp sensor? I seen in another thread a sensor is nearby one of these lines.

If not, I think I have my work cut out for me with this diy. Thankfully this forum is amazing and has a lot of write ups.

I cannot imagine sensor replacement would have anything to do with this failure. Judging by the photos, it has been a rather long term leak due to the dirt buildup........just finally reaching the point of a drip.

I would be inclined to degrease the entire area (40's this weekend....might be a good opportunity) and, once clean, see if this is a leak that demands immediate attention.
You may find the seepage is so minute (often the case) that you can address it more conveniently in the spring.

BTW....live in DesPlaines, work at my sons shop (I'm supposed to be retired, heh heh) in Arlington Hts.......small world, isn't it?
