For me this issue only happens when it comes to ships. I suspect it's because of the more complicated architecture. But yes, it looks like grating is running down the side of the ship.

For anyone not afflicted with this problem, note it ONLY happens if you shadows set to Medium or High (so if you don't, don't bother posting). High lessens the effect but its still noticeable if you are looking directly at your ship. It seems to affect high angle shadows the most. This is the best screenshot I could find of it happening, it clearly shows the 'grating' effect people are talking about. In motion it appears the shadow is 'moving' or 'flickering' depending on how you perceive it.
