Question on OEM Performance Grills

I recently purchased a set of supposedly OEM Performance Grills and I'm not quite sure if they are OEM Performance Grills. They have all the markings and part numbers as if were oem grills, but finish is what I'm wondering about.

The grills I received are very much more glossy around the outside of the grills, the circles - if you will. And the slats are not matte, but def not as noticably glossy and smooth to the touch as the surrounding area.

Is this how the OEM Performance grills come? If no one can 100% verify this for me, I'll go to the dealer and find out.

Just figured it'd be easier to ask you guys since so many people have these.

Thanks in advance

Yes, the "rings" should be glossy and the "slats" should be less glossy, but not matte.
