It's the "soft touch" coating they use. It's not just an MBZ thing, either - it happens on all cars that used the rubberized coating.

I attempted to clean mine with goo gone, no luck. I eventually use some other product and it wiped off the paint 😔. I now try to ignore it.

I had the same issue. after a lot of research, I used Windex on the soft clean rag. Just be patient and do not rub too hard.

Mine turned out perfect without doing any damage to the button surface
