water damaged wood? Or just stained?

I have a water leak in a shed that I've ignored for years. taking the roof off to replace it and the sheathing. I see dried water stains like in these pictures. There's other areas where the 2x4s are rotted and I know those need to be replaced.

But what about these? it seems to be just stains. The wood appears to be solid if I poke at it. Would you spray with bleach or something else to kill something?

In a shed? No I wouldn't bother. But it won't hurt anything if you do.
