Discoloration of hardwood flooring

Any idea if this stain might be caused by water damage? There's no cupping, warping or buckling, and it doesn't look like the water stains I see on google images. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the forums! Do you have underfloor radiant heating? It looks similar to a scorch mark. Possibly where a hot item was placed at one time?? Maybe a chemical laden rag was laid there for a period of time before being removed. Really difficult to tell what it is.

Thanks for the reply. Definitely not caused by heat but a rag with chemicals seems more plausible...

It's hard to tell from your picture whether the stain might look blue IRL. If it does, it may be a urine stain. Possibly from a pet?
