Default Upper rear fender wells and rust?

I have noticed quite a few trucks of various ages with rust or rust bubbling on the top of the rear fender wells and was wondering why it seems Dodge is more prone to this than either Ford or Dodge? [My observation anyways]

Talking this past weekend to my bud who is a mechanic who knows a body man, he told me it is because Dodge uses some type of foam in that area and therefore it collects water, salt, sand etc and that is the main reason why you see so many Dodge trucks with rust there.

Just curious is this is indeed true and if so, is it still in use on the new trucks?

I get my vehicles undercoated at least once every two yrs with Rust Check so hopefully I don't get the issue, but I am not sure if the product actually reaches or the applicator can access the areas I am talking about?
