That is a noise reduction function built into the camera. I've seen the same effect on a few other cameras, and when I apply very strong noise reduction with Nikon Capture on my images. Jpg artifacting has a different appearance than that, noise reduction smoothes out most areas of continuous tone, leaving the edges of detail unaffected.
