Could transmission fluid leak out of one of the end caps on my gx470 radiator? on 2006 Lexus GX470

I looked at it from underneath and it appears there is trans fluid where the fins meet the end cap.

Could be due to the transmission cooler in the radiator.
Any way to repair this or is the best answer a new radiator?
It would be easier to replace the radiator instead of tearing the radiator apart and replacing the tank. A new one can be a lifetime warranty. O'Reilly's are lifetime and are fairly inexpensive.
I had my radiator replace a couple years ago, there was according to Lexus club members radiator issues with this truck.
Lexus rarely recalls, so I ate the 500.00 for the replacement and have no leakage any more
