It's all of the major networks including Google's own affiliate network. I have offers on a more established site that get traffic to similar pages so I suspect it's an authority issue. Sites with more authority can get away with more, apparently.
Would you share which affiliate programs are those?
Back to the topic: If you don't want to dig back to 2011 and fix the unnatural links(that Google didn't share with you) the other option is just to get more quality links and balance out your overall graph, it's all relative.
Saying you have 100 questionable links could be extremely good or extremely bad, it depends on the ratio. If you have 10 good links it's probably bad, if you have 10,000 good links the 100 bad are not likely a problem.
My advice is still to make sure that not ALL incoming links have the same anchor text(unless it's a tld exact match). A natural link graph usually has good variance in anchor text.
