as the pores are pale yellow not white as they are in youth

It looks rather young to me with unexpanded cap. I see why you are calling it S. granulatus — the patchy cap and a cloudy liquid exuding from the pores. You could be right after all. I was more cautious about proposing a species name because pines were not mentioned in the habitat description, there were no needles on the ground, and the liquid changed color.

Suillus granulatus—patchwork yellow brown cap, small pallid pores bruising brown, no partial veil, yellow brown glandular dots on stem. Could it be pines that were nearby but unseen? I had that experience with larch once when I thought I found Suillus grevillei but could see no larch. The next day I went back and found larch that had been hidden from view by other trees.

At least that’s what I think it is. Are you sure there were no conifers around? The only hardwood-loving suillus I can think of is S. subaureus, and yours isn’t that.
