Yes, all of the places where the stickers are is metallic. When they painted the cars from the factory, they usually used a differnt color (like flat black) for the inside sheet metal (areas in the front trunk). The panel where the VIN plates and other stickers are is definitely black metallic. I noticed this previously, but didn't put two and two together that the entire exterior had been metallic.

Doesn't terribly matter to me...
