This is a picture from 2018 of a pipe I smoke at least once a day. An issue (with me and rimcake anyway) is that I smack ashes out of my pipe on he heel of my shoe and every now and then hunks come off in this process. It builds back up though...

I think a lot of “char” is just soot
buildup. Pipes usually tilt downward and you’ll see the buildup more on the inner rim. A lot of it could clean up with a scrub and some sort of spirit or damp ashes.
