Wiped cam lobes?

Still disassembling this GTE with a supposed reman head and I'm looking at the exhaust cam lobes. The lifters and shims are mirror finished as well as the lobe tips but the upslope/downslope looks ground and hazy. I don't actually feel a difference in surface texture like I would expect with wiping, but a knowledgeable friend tells me this looks like low oil pressure/wiping.

Anyone have a comparison pic or knowledgeable about reman cams to know if these have been wiped or just haven't been broken in? The edges of the lobes still have some burrs that look like they've recently been ground.
