Never happened. They used silver paint then switched to black. I don't know what year or models switched when but they are all black now. If you really prefer the silver you could paint the cases silver or strip the black off.
Be advised, pure aluminum is too soft for modern engine cases but it does not corrode. Alloy is very strong and light but corrodes like crazy. That's why they get painted.
If anyone knows what year they switched from silver to black I'd appreciate that info.
It must vary by country - in the UK the T100 engine cases are still chrome by default - the T100 Black SE has black cases but not all models.
