The tint shop was able to fill in the dot matrix on my E90 as much as possible. It came out quite nice. My wife's f30 has a wider strip of dot matrix on the rear window and the 2nd tint shop was not able to fill the bottom of the rear window dot matrix. Due to the steep angle between the glass and rear deck, there is a small gap on the bottom of the reAr window that is not tinted.

I heard some tint shop will sand down the dot matrix or place a small strip of black vinyl over the dots then tint over it.
