Emmert Chev in Detroit ordered 20 COPO 9561 Camaros for stock; 10 of them were special paint.

So it wasn't all of them but few dealers probably wanted to bother with it.

JohnZ worked in the plants back then. And I have docs from several dealers. No way is it 50%.
80-90% seems about what I see too.
Maybe it was a regional thing. Most dealers in my area sold lots of customer order cars. My mom and dad always ordered a car. It was in the 80's before they bought a car off the lot.

Would it be safe to say that any first gen Camaro with the special paint code was special ordered for a customer?

Not necessarily. Some dealers were known to special order colors; like Carolina Blue for instance.
