Vlatka Lake from Space Station explained the eggs would be subjected to a series of sudden temperature changes in that spot. This will cause the eggs to rot faster.

"Egg racks are susceptible to changes in temperature due to the fridge door opening and closing and can cause your eggs to go rotten more quickly," Lake told The Sun.
