Looks like it’s just some really bad fading/yellowing from exposure

They kind of look like they have been soaked in hydrogen peroxide to me; I have
had some success with light soaks on non-white bricks but most of the time they
come out splotchy like those and I end up throwing them away anyways. Just my
$.02...

I'd guess the original color was dark grey, not dark bluish grey - whatever
happened to them... Do you have anything in DG to compare them to? I'd guess
they are discolored, mostly because I never manage to show the difference between
dg and dbg so clearly on pictures...

No need to throw them away. You could always sell them as filler bricks.

That wedge doesn't seem to be existing in dark gray color,
Brick 2 x 2 x 3 seems to be existing in two sets in dark gray color, you can
check if there are additional distinctive parts in your bulk lot
75 2 x 2 x 3 slope (if I'm seeing right) will tell it's age if it has
solid studs or hollow studs... according to catalog it doesn't exist in dark
gray color with solid studs...

ps: I might be wrong in any or all of the above guesses since it's just 1.5
years that I'm into Lego.
