Arrow Cover - Front, Back & in between

I was looking at the latest Arrow and a few things came to mind.

On the front cover, I have noticed that late in the life of the J's, the 
bright Headlight bezel, Number board trim and Class lights appear to be 
black. Is there a reason for that?
In the case of #612 on the cover, the builder's and class plates appear 
to be missing. I think that this has been discussed before, but, I 
forgot when or where.

Regarding Buffers, I have noticed that there were express reefers/milk 
reefers that also were equipped with buffers similar to those shown on 
the CG caboose.

On the back cover, can someone explain what looks like a centering 
device/buffer on the draft gear of #103?
