I bought a fig tree from a local DIY store. It has started developing these white patches. Does anybody know what they indicate?

This looks to me as a sunburnt. In the store, the plant was sheltered from direct sun. Then you put it outside, and that's too much sun for the leaves it had grown in the shades back there.
Its not too bad for it I think, and new leaves won't develop such weakness since they will grow in the sun. Maybe just remove it from full-day sunlight and leave it a week or so to adapt.
