Bulb will fail soon. Or it's aftermarket bulb with wrong resistance or whatever.

One of rear brake lamps was changed with OEM lamp many years ago and don't have this problem until recently. Since all lamps are still functioning, I will wait until it goes off to fix it. Could it be another problem other than lamp?

Not likely.

Could also be caused by a corroded lamp socket.
The problem will be in the side that blinks faster.

I was told long ago, that bulb resistance changes, and then bulb goes boink. That's how you know that bulb is bad - blinker blinks much faster.
