COULD be residual effects of previous sunburn damage, BUT, I don't know the strength of your sun or temps. Are the damaged areas all facing the same direction (provided you have not moved the plants)?

I agree about the old sunburn.

There are also some plumeria that have naturally very gnarly bark, or bark that tends to split and get ugly at wound sites. It doesn't seem to be affecting the plant, though, so I wouldn't worry about it.

I agree. I wouldn't really worry about it they're very hardy plants. I have a plant thats trunk is ripped in half and it still fine. it's flowering at the moment. Yours just really looks like sunburn. When they are sunburnt the trunk tends to split and turn into a brown color.
