Hi, welcome to HCM.
Your doctor is absolutely correct in interpretation of chest xrays. Such calcific flecks are usually due to past infection.
It is sign of healed infection. It can't be removed nor it is dangerous. However gulf countries have such regulations for unknown reasons. You can take medical fitness certificate if permissible.

Best luck for job.
