I read on the Correos (Spain post office) website :
“We have over one hundred offices on the Way where we can help you and also stamp your Credencial. Many of them have special stamps related to the Camino.”

Forget that. After I mailed my weekly letter to my father-in-law at a post office in Utrera, I asked the clerk if she had a sello for my credential. I got a rude, curt reply in the negative. Apparently, Correos didn’t send the memo out to their offices. Or maybe only the Camino Frances got the memo. Sure didn’t get it on the Via Serrana.
By the way, on the Via Francigena, Canterbury to Rome, clerks in every post office in France and Switzerland were more than happy to stamp my credential. Italy was a different story, to be avoided like Spain Correos.
