Insects can certainly cause mold to develop in grapes, such as summer bunch rot, when they puncture the grape skin to feed on healthy pre-moldy grapes, and thus can be a significant problem for farmers. But fungus beetles (which these may or may not be -- I don't know), are simply attracted to the same moist conditions that cause mold -- that is they are not causing the mold.
