Hi pulse1,

Even a heavy landing of say 1,000 feet per min at touch down is only 10 kts vertically. That amount of energy is tiny compared to full heavy braking from say 150 kts (or more with some flap problem.)

The overheating signs (blue due oxidation interference pattern) must have come from the heat transfer from very hot brakes.
