No, that's the protective coating applied prior to shipping. It's removed at the VDC. Dealerships typically apply a silicone-based glaze to hide imperfections in the paint; in many cases, the dealer causes the imperfections by sloppy prep techniques. Other times, the imperfections are a "factory standard option" (ever seen a brand new Ferrari? Yikes!).
