I haven't heard of that option, but I'm not saying there wasn't one. If you suspect the tail gate was re-painted, you can check it with 'paint detective' or similar device. Measurements should be around 130 160 microns, around 190 indicates a re-spray, anything more than that and the dealer should be worried.
