Deck is rusting.
I was under the impression that SS does not rust easily. I left a rinsed deck for a week or so to only find there is some rust on the deck and chimney.

That's probably rust that came off the screws.

Not necessarily, SS Steel do rust (iron oxide) if it's a low quality grade (less chromium).
High SS grade do rust too if the surface is not smooth enough to get a proper chromium oxide film. (mirror polish your pieces if you can - Deck/shaft/chamber - Also Clean everything with non-corrosive solution and dry them properly )

Thanks guys...I cleaned most of it off with rubbing alcohol, but it can't be a good thing to be vaping rust.

Rust is rather benign and you can't really vape it. Clean it off but don't worry about it.

It's not indeed, that's why you must clean and keep your material in good shape.
