Sounds like paint.  I have a set of what I think are 68 fins (as opossed to 67 fins) that have a drain like the 68 stacks. I do not have any 67's or Nova's to compair.
   Anybody have knowledge of a differance, or a picture of the bottom of 67 fins?

Do they appear to have silver paint in the area or is it a textured surface?
It also looks as though the matte silver comes all the way to the top on the outside of the stacks, is this correct?

BTW the inner black out in the bottom of the stacks appears to be anodized aluminum in the originals, are the NOS ones the same?

The outside of the stacks are painted matte silver right up to the top of the stacks. The insides are chrome plated. The base around the stacks are also chrome plated. It's difficult to capture in a photo but there is just a very small amount of overspray where the matte silver meets the chrome plating at the base of the stacks.

Hope this answers your questions.
