Question Case hardened re-finish questions

I recently looked at a re-finished GH 12 ga. The case hardened parts appear to have a clear finish over the metal. What is the nature of this coating and why is it there? I have a 16 ga. VH and GH that were re-case hardened and have no finish over the metal just a subtle, beautiful re-color.
Both of my re-finished guns have very little or no "straw" color in them but I see lots of it in some re-case hardened guns. What's the story on this? Which is true to original (unfortunately I have no pristine original guns to compare to)?
