Beige painted grout coming off after so many years. If the paint is only coming up in that place, then something harsh/ chemical could’ve been used.

Thank you! I was suspecting some kind of paint but didn't know for sure. Is it a color seal or a paint for concrete?

Don’t know but you should probably be using tile colors instead of concrete paint.

Failing color sealer.
Only solution is to scrub the grout with a stainless steel brush and reapply color seal

Ya color seal peel. You can touch it up or remove all of it and re seal

The color looks like "linen" to me if that helps.

Its not the best color seal but you can get polysil in linen at home depot if your in a pinch and need to touch it up.
 

Steam It.

That looks like failing color seal and I am seeing it all the time around here. Most comes right off with just hot water and 1600+psi but some of it is a PITA to get off no matter what you do.
