Yep, static will do this.  We saw this with B&W 16mm even 30 years ago.
Some anecdotal accounts indicate it happens inside the changing bag, others
that it happens after photography, some during development, but it is
clearly visible in the image with a loupe.  It's not a scanning problem per
se. 

Fix it with restoration tools like MTI or Revival.  That's basically all you
can do, as far as I know.
