It's possible that the brown patches are sunburn, but I don't think so. Its not exactly characteristic of sunscald which usually has transitional areas of discoloration surrounding the necrotic tissue. Hibiscus is normally tolerant of full sun, unless under-watered and drought stressed.

A photo of the entire plant showing how much of the plant is affected, and the site conditions would help us to determine what is going on. As well as a description of your soil and water management.
