Structured Data Spam is real. Google even has a support page devoted specifically to it.
The sad thing about structured data penalties is that they can happen by a simple misunderstanding or by charging into it without stopping to read Google’s guidelines. Spam penalties (also known as manual actions) can happen when there is no intent to spam. A mistake will still be seen as spam.
