Plant Deadheading Itself??

LOL I really struggled with a title for this topic as I really don't even know how to explain this.

I order plants online quite a bit and I noticed something that happens with plants that there might be a name for. I discribe it as Plant deadheading Itself because it literally picks a spot just below the leaf and withers there but leaves the rest of the stem looking healthy. It happened when I recieved my monstera and now happened to one of the leaves on my newest begonia addition. So what gives? :D Here are some pictures, lookng forward to hearing your responses!

Confusion at its Finest :D
I'm rooting for you!

I'm wondering if it's transition shock. Were they grown in a cool greenhouse and now in a warm house?

The other leaves look a little stressed also. Could be root bound and over watering.

Just some thoughts
