Seems to me they out to paint these things to look kinda sooty to begin with, rather than white. It’s kinda like donning a sparkling-white swimsuit before mud-wrestling.

I wonder if a darker color would potentially hide defects or damage.

I expected to see "Wash Me" hand written in the soot someplace.

Paint has weight. Unless it serves a purpose (insulation, etc) it’s not needed..

Looks like they saved some weight by shaving off a look down camera and its cowling, too.
