Usually mufflers don't rust that easily on the inside. However if there was water inside, it is probably rusting.

Once saw a guy with a high-pressure waterpump doing a car wash and as he cleaned the exhaust tip he directly pointed into the exhaust. You don't wanna do that haha.

The fiberglass packing inside will burnout over time, changes the sound and noise level.

every time your exhaust pipe warms up/cools down, there is water inside your exhaust. water condensates from the air with the change of temperature. it is unavoidable in a combustion engine...
