"Black Chrome" exhaust tips: paint melting?

So I have a completely stock 135i coupe, and when I got out of my car the other day the paint on the inside lip of my exhaust tips was bubbling!
I hadn't driven the car hard, but it was about 90 degrees out.
Bare metal is now visible on parts of the tips, has this happened to anyone else?
I'd think BMW would test out this paint in extreme conditions...
