To elaborate on what Jim said, the glaze acts like a "clear" over it burying the scratch so you end up seeing it when that glaze wears away. This is why guys will cut and buff a car, deliver it to the customer and then the customer comes back with swirl marks and crap all over it. The glaze was like a coat of clear over the panels filling those flaws.
