In both cases, the yellow matter comprises remnants of the wedge of universal veil that originally lay between the bottom of the annulus and the stem (stipe) of this mushroom. If you come along early enough in the mushroom’s development, you will see that the volva on the cap is also yellow. This suggests a connection between the pair of mushrooms mentioned above to another red-brown bruising amanita — A. flavorubens.
