Layers of Primer - Paint?

I chipped some paint off the mounts when I put the rear seat back in. I thought it was interesting to see the various layers on the largest chip that I found. I can count what looks like 9 layers/coats including orange-grey-black-red-white and my gecko.
Kinda crappy photo but ....
Any thoughts on this , besides me having too much time on my hands ?

Had an M38A1 that looked like that. Just balled it all up when I went to grind it off when I was in body school way back when. Finally sent it off to get sand blasted. Found 3 - .30 cal bullet holes in the left rear 1/4 that were filled completely with paint, no filler.

Yes , it was purchased new. This is why I'm a little curious. Had it been double dipped at the factory ? Was it an Orange Crush before ?
I haven't any significant stone-chips or scratches yet to compare elsewhere on the body , just branch scuffing. It's no biggey , I think a thick paint might be a bonus.
