I earlier used an Epson Perfection 3200 Photo scanner, and it did the same.
Surfaces of homogeneous or almost homogeneous colour are misunderstood by the scanner in big single-coloured blocks, while fine transitions of shades within them appear pixelated.
No idea why, actually, any explanations are welcome, mine is just a documentation of the thing.
