You can't. A compound path is treated as one single path, that's the whole point of a a compound path. Any fill, stroke, effect or anything applied to your compound path is applied to the whole compound path, not just one sub path.

The part of my design that is "streaking" with the small random white lines is a simple silhouette I used live trace on. It was not occurring on any of the other objects in my design. A simple web search brought me here and I tried a few of the suggestions ...

Add a stroke to the PATH, up the width until you just see a little bit of inner fill left. Object > Expand. You should have three paths now.

Currently, the three little nubs don't look like a slideable object, which is why people may not try using them. I suggest taking a look at some sliders/slider plug ins to see how they handle their sliding arms. You may want to use something with a point to it so it pinpoints what exactly they are sliding too. Something like this perhaps. Here's why: ...

The subtraction of the inner circle can be reset, giving this result: (Btw, this only works after removing the circle from the group, or else Sketch just subtracts two circles from the rectangle at a different spot) As you can see, it kinda works, but there is a whole part of the inside of the circle again that is flowing outside of the boundaries of the ...

You stated that you have to export the image as .BMP, which doesn't accept transparency. As such, anything you export that has a transparency will have a color background added.
