Those are some inductors of head gasket problems, but you really need to do more.

It seems you have eliminated everything likely other than the one you don't want it to be. I sure looks like the head gasket. Do a compression check

You either find someone with a compression gauge for a diesel or you buy one and follow the instructions.
I suggest you may want to buy a shop or repair manual for your transporter. It will have detailed instructions, trouble shooting guide and most important in this case, the compression norms for your engine.

It could be normal. Diesels tend to do that. It could also mean a injector timing issue.
