As already stated, cracks come from uneven drying -- if you turned your roughouts to a uniform thickness, then it probably means they dried too quickly.
And, yes, they may have been micro-cracked before you roughed them.
I always put my roughouts into closed, double, brown-paper bags, stored in a cool, dark, humidity-controlled basement room (a.k.a. wine cellar), and rotate for a few days if they're damp (don't want to encourage mold). Anchorseal on the end grain would certainly be an alternative. ...GG
