Help! Oak work top advice please

Just had oak worktops installed in October. Used osmo wood protector and polyx BUT the fitter had given them one coat of Danish oil before I could stop him. I got him to sand back then finished as above.

Just noticed a few black spots already around the sink. I am fastidious about drying up.

What do I do to stop this spreading?! I am absolutely gutted if all my prep has failed this quickly.

Help help help.

Perhaps sand back the affected area and apply more oil.
My fitter used about 5 or 6 coats last September and no signs of mould/blackness so I think the key is to put many thin layers on.
