repaint is all I can think of, new parts come with a flat black look and the whole thing might not have been painted, only the top (half assed IMO)

could be something else though, but I highly doubt its from the factory like that. Even on a new car, the hood could have been damaged during freight and the dealer had to give it a new hood and paint...and no, THAT would not end up on a carfax because "it never happened".
