It looks like old paint and grey primer IMO.
I would think you could buy a flat paint (as opposed to say, a hi gloss) But I would imagine there is not as much of a color selection.Sorry its been years since I worked in a body shop (growing up) and was not really interested in that aspect of car repair at that time (to think of all the free knowledge I could have gained)
My dad and grandfather were both body/paint men I always heard them say the only paint they cant match is old. Never asked if they could paint new OLD paint (or old NEW paint)whichever.

We have flattening agents that are mixed in the clear to kill the gloss for the guys who want that effect..

DuPont has a flat paint that I believe can be tinted shades tho am not sure what colors. My guess is that PPG also has one by now. If the biggies have a flatted paint, the smaller companies will be (or will have already) following suit.

The DuPont is very nice
