I have seen this before. I have accused a homeowner of using graphite lubricant on the hinges for ease of movement, BUT,
have heard that this could be the wearing of the inside metals or some previous lubricant has dried up and turned to powder.

The cleaning and using a light machine oil should remedy this.
