Welcome to the forum and big kudos to you on your rescue! My youngest was also a rescue and within a week of being euthanized when we got her out. She is the most loving and wonderful dog we could have ever asked for!
On to your issue.... I'm of the opinion that these bites/marks certainly stand out enough that I find it hard to believe that the vet overlooked them. It's could be he did not mention them as they look like they are, perhaps, crusted over and healing with scabs. Though we'll never know, it's likely your dog has spent some time on the streets somewhere, and these are also likely either flea bites, or where ticks were removed. When ticks are yanked off, sometimes the heads remain, causing infection. Hopefully, once in the shelter, he was cleaned up to a point, and these areas are just now healing up.
Transition her over to some good quality food (shelter food is notoriously very low quality containing mostly grain=filler) like Zignature, Go Fit and Free or Taste of the Wild, and some probiotics once he's over his bout of pneumonia, if that's what the vet has determined.
Please let us know how he's doing!
