Asking for help identifying this

Hello to all,
I am finding these things stuck to the top of my interior door moldings. They are hard and dry and are about 10-12mm long and some are more of a disk shape. No smell. Any idea what these are?

Thanks in advance.

10-12mm long 6mm high some are more of a disk shape

My guess would be a messy painter left you some "presents" from his caulking gun. Caulk would continue to leak out his tube when he set it down and when he picked it up, he wiped it up there like a booger. But it looks like construction adhesive so could be that another trade did it. Flooring maybe?

I'm leaning towards them being old cockroach bait placements that came out of a syringe type applicator that has hardened. Look in other areas such as under the sink, kitchen cabinet cracks and crevices, etc.
