There are rubber boots on the caliper bracket posts, upper and lower. I have 3 that seem to be somehow seated firmly at each end.

One upper boot rotates easily with my fingers. However, it is in contact with the caliper bracket on one end and caliper body on the other end. Do I need to be concerned about the possibility of brake fluid leakage or contamination at this location? Or is there just lubricant on the posts?

Just had a brake job at the end of May and noticed the boot was not seated tightly like the other 3 today. No tears in it.

If I understand where you are talking about there is no possibilty of brake fluid leakage. The piston moves in the caliper bolt and has o-ring like seals. The caps you describe are probably bleeder caps used to keep dirt out. If you have fluid around them wipe them dry and check that the bleeder is tight. Probably from where your mechanic didn't wipe the fluid off.
