RG652 - is the fretboard binding coated?


Just picked up a new RG652 in Antique white, beautiful guitar. Its got what seem to be black hairline cracks on the low E side of the fretboard binding (3 frets), as per the pic below. However they might just be scratches that have somehow been stained. Before I try and scrub at them can anyone tell me if the binding is usually 'naked' or is satin coated like the back of the neck? (because if they are actual cracks I might start to worry!)
