Just over a year ago we had a bay window installed. Very recently, we noticed some mold or mildew damage to the oak window seat, just along the edge of the window seal.
What is the correct method to fix the appearance of the wood, and why would it appear now after a year's time?

Best way to deal with it is to call the contractor who installed it and let him deal with it. I have no doubt that his installation is responsible for your problem there is maybe only a 3% chance that the manufacturer is at fault.

Was the wood properly sealed with sanding sealer or wood sealer 1st then varnished,polyed,or lacquered?
If not then this is the problem

I agree, call the installer first and have them deal with it. The problem is either theirs or the manufacturers. But for someone on this forum to say they have no doubt that the problem is from the install and there is only a 3% chance it is the manufacture's fault is ridiculous. Especially if they know nothing about the window itself or the installation method. While there are several well built window products out there, the market still has it's fair share of cheap, defective, and yes, leaking windows.

Did you experience condensation on your windows? That could've caused the wood discoloration. It happened to me when I left my mini-blinds pulled shut all the time -- it trapped the air and caused condensation and stained the wood grilles.
