Thank you Johan, I feel better.
We only get these in South Africa. Very interesting.

Compare the geometric pattern in the second photo of this spotting to your 4th photo.

I wouldn't worry about the storing of food. These have messy webs and what you saw there were in all probability dry husks with nothing in them.
