Could be the picture, but that looks more like a rub mark from something than a crack on the engine mount. In any case, a crack is much more likely to occur at a weld, and be circumferential, than lengthwise.

A problem with the engine mount also will not be connected to a rise in ferrous metals in the oil analysis. You are chasing two different problems, unrelated, and one of which may not be a problem at all.
