Is this a fungal infection, or is it treatable whatever it is?

This is a rooted plant I ordered with some cuttings a few weeks ago, two of the cuttings have grown some spots just like this and this plant was perfectly spotless when I watered it a few days ago.

Treatable? Or can it spread and infect my other plants and I should just throw them away and reorder them?

Nope. Sadly, dont think there will be enough tissue to even make a cutting that you can propagate. This a seriously nasty infection. Discard.

You are overwatering.

That was its first watering ever, it was wrinkled and thirsty beforehand. The black spot appeared a few days afterwards, and two unrooted cuttings that came from the same seller had the same spots show up before this one developed one.

Contact your seller. Maybe he will send you some replacements.
