Guessing sun fade. You can see this on plastic auto parts that see a lot of sun. I have a short radio antenna I put on in 2014 and the color is what you show in your picture.

If it is the gloss black, the trim is not plastic, it is anodized aluminium. They are bad for getting soap residue. Need to wipe them down with a mild compound to bring them back.

On my phone, can't tell if the mouldings are gloss black or regular black.
