I do this with all our boards at the end of the year.
I also need to do this with many new boards as the glue and junk gets into the inserts not allowing the screws to go in cleanly or square. Lib Tech was the worst with junk from the building process gumming up the inserts.
My middle boys new Forum I just did this and took this pic last night cleaning out the inserts on a brand new board

You could use a finishing tap to clean out the thread.

Also, is the rust in the binding inserts that you want to use? If so, can you work it out by bolting/unbolting a few times?
Honestly, if it's positions you'll never use I'd just clean it, wd-40 it, and not worry. You'll replace the board before the rust will do any damage to the board itself. (Unless you're planning on re-selling it someday?)
If it's positions you need and you can't clean it out, the board is a doorstop and should be returned asap.
