I know paint chips, I live on a gravel road. Paint chips on the trunk and sides are caused by your tires "pitching" bits of stone in the air. You will also get stones chipping paint on the fender tops from the same cause. Get front fender splash guards from American Muscle, got them on the BOSS, work great.

Some paint batches are worse than others for chipping. I had a black 2004 Mustang GT and a Black 2004 Corvette at the same time. The Mustang's paint was very chip resistant and scratch resistant, the Corvette was a chip magnet as you described. After 30K miles the nose of the Corvette was "sandblasted" with chips, then I hit the deer. I had the 'Vette's body repaired at my local Ford dealer, he did an incredible job, paint never chipped again, it was very durable.
So my feeling is, you have a bad batch of paint on your car.
