Take them off. Wash with soap and water. Wipe them down with wax/grease/silicon remover. Scuff with purple scotch brite pad. Wipe down with wax/grease/silicon remover. Spray with krylon fusion. Or you could go to the paint store and buy the OEM paint. Just a time taker, nothing difficult.

Dont use wax& grease remover on plastic parts. Use de natured alcohol. The wax&grease remover will pull the mold release agent out of the plastic.

So my plan of action is :
Take them off. Wash with soap and water. Wipe them down with de natured alcohol.. Scuff with purple scotch brite pad. Wipe down with de natured alcohol.. Spray with krylon fusion.
Sounds good to me.

The mold release agent is not mixed in the injection. The release agent is applied directly to the mold.

Again, not looking to argue but I paint nothing without using a silicon remover.

That may be but you dont use a dedicated wax& grease remover on plastic. It will draw the oils out. Denatured alcohol is what is needed to be used on plastic.

Here is my dedicated opinion.

for 30 years I've heard conflicting advice about which type of wax and grease remover is best and the difference between solvent-based and alcohol-based cleaners.

Wax and grease removers are solvent-based liquids, which are refined from petroleum. The solvent is readily absorbed into raw plastic. Raw = un-primered

Alcohol based (distilled from grain) wax and grease removers arenít easily absorbed into the plastic because they flash to0 quickly to do really good cleaning, so I recommend solvent cleaners even on raw plastic. Wipe on and wipe off immediately. That is key, don't let any solvent sit wet on plastic. Wipe it off with a clean cloth.

In addition a plastic adhesion promoter is worth the extra dough.

I'm not arguing, just sharing my experiences.
