Totally saturated.

its that moisture thats slowly leeching through and into and onto the surface.  best bet is your going to have to wait for a long dry spell and then have it resealed.

Have what resealed though? I just had the entire chimney coated with some kind of a duracoat and the roofer has done the flashing several times.

any pictures? 
was the inside of the chimney sealed or just the outside?

There can already be moisture trapped within the brick or the stucco, which got in before the re-sealing.

Talking to a dedicated chimney guy probably wouldn't hurt either.
