Glad you solved the mystery. As I mentioned before, the sill plates are mostly matte intentionally - to help hide scuff marks. A glossy finish would show scuffs/scratches way too easily. Here in New England, vinyl wrap would never survive the battle against heavy boot scrapes, etc. Maybe light-weight Florida flip flops are more forgiving! I get visible scuff marks on mine all the time, but they polish out of the matte surface fairly easily.

I use Novus polishes to remove scratches from plastics and acrylics, and their products seem to work well on my sill plates. I'm assuming these have an epoxy or polyester coating on them. I've only used the "level 1 - clean & shine" for fear of removing any of the surface coating - which might happen if I used any of the heavier scratch removers. Heavier scratches might require the "level 2 - fine scratch remover". Go easy and test on a small area first.
