    I cant think how soot would get there unless either the exhaust side of the turbo is cracked or leaking

    isn't the egr location on the manifold quiet far from the turbo to do that ?

    New gasket needed? Not tightened enough? Possibly the blank plate is too far from flat for the gasket to do its job?

    At least you've found what looks like the cause!
