If you look closely you will only see condensation clouds from the lower half of the tank. That suggests to me the upper half is frosted over from the gas on top of the LOX, not the LOX itself.

Big vent from Ship 25

(And regarding Ramses' comment, yes, certainly possible)

Will likely head back to the production site for its engines following its recent cryo-proofing at the launch site: (youtube.com/watch?v=SFCBi2 - highlights of recent testing).

Ship 25 entering Highway 4. The local Sheriff wants to know if she's been drinking cryo.
