I have damage like this on a few of my pilos in the garden this year too. I think it is a combination of sun damage and lack of nutrients. Kinda like when the old leaves turn yellow on plants that grow leaves so that they can transport the nutrients which are in that part of the plant to the growing points. I only just noticed it recently and have decided to fertilize to see if that improves the situation.
The same plants survived serious heat in the past including the black saturday heatwave. The only things that are different this year is I haven't fed them for a very long time, also thisn year we've had lots of cold cloudy weather followed by ridiculous heat and bright sun, the swing between extremes often causes sunburn more than the heat itself.
Course it could always be disease but then why is only the afternoon sun side being affected?
