Factories don't typically supply painted parts to dealers.

I've heard it done with BMW. However, takes forever (3 months).

But then my concern would be whether it matches other adjacent panels...

Similar thing happened to my 2013 F10. I had the imprints look like water droplets. I think , due to the design of the hood, even when you traveling at 70 Mph , the water does not run off of the car. DBS600's car is certainly on a specific spots, so it is not like mine.

I am serious, guys, I have a video while i was driving on a rainy day. Water just clusters on the top half of the hood and does not move much and settles and bakes in sunlight after you park. (Happens in Florida). I think the sculpture design on the hood is a big contributor.

Solution, BMW offered that they will wet sand the factory paint on a 2 months old car.
I had no choice but getting it done. Now it is much better than how it was and no longer visible.

I just did not want my car to be resprayed.
