These pieces do not look like they came from the cam roller bearings... If it was the cam roller you should see some small pin like needle fragments on your pickup magnet...
Is this piece magnetic/was it stuck to the magnet? It almost looks like a piece of the clutch basket but the clutch basket is not magnetic...

It looks to be about 10mm wide, maybe it is the locking tab off the clutch nut retaining washer...

You picture is not large enough to pick out the full detail, was this the only solid chunk or is there more? It is not unusual and quite normal to have a bunch of magnetic fluff stuck to the drain plug magnet but a chunk like you found would have me pulling the side cover first to look at the clutch...

What year is the engine?
