They're eggs. Do they look like sesame seeds?

I'm not so sure, snail eggs are usually in a jelly casing. Also nerites need brackish water to breed I think

So should I leave them and see or should I scrub them off/boil the wood?

Nerites need brackish to salt to breed but they still lay eggs in fresh. They are most likely nerites and wont hatch. There eggs are not jelly incased
