the application of paint to darken reflectivity had "helped somewhat with the issue of the objects' brightness"

Are all the satellites getting the new paint job? Some of the earlier articles hinted that only a limited number were given the treatment as a test program? (Would be a good PR strategy: "oh, the satellites are still too bright, well, yes, you saw a non-treated one, later ones will be better")
