Create a polygon layer.
Use a Point pattern fill.
Set the Size of the Marker to eg rand(-10,10).

The points are rendered with artifacts, they seem to be made of randomly sized circle segments.

See the screenshot.

I disabled multi-process rendering, which did not solve this.

Point pattern fills (and some other fills, e.g. line pattern fill) are currently drawn using tiled blocks for speed. It's the edges of these tiles you're seeing here.

This is actually a duplicate of #6996 (well, the fix for #6996 would fix this too).
