The only thing I understand not to caulk is siding that over laps horizontally. Especially on large walls where they didn't install a means to ventilate. It's like a big gill. All the stuff under an eve can be caulked as long as you don't block the eve vents. And soffits can be caulked as long as the soffit vents aren't blocked.

Going out on a limb but could it be the roof has a leak in that spot? If you were the one that powerwashed then you would've known not to blast any water in the direction of the soffit vent. Those are pretty small vents and more likely than not have a decent amount of paint buildup on them making it more difficult for water to get in. Did it rain between you finishing the job and doing the powerwashing? Just something to think about I could be totally off base.

You make a good point. Because if the water problem isn't solved, neither will the stain issues be. They will easily come back with the next opportunity. However, if it was simply tannin bleed, the occurance may be a one time event.
