Was that simply overspray from the factory when they gave a couple of quick sprays from below onto the frame? or was it applied earlier and 'strategically'?

Yup. Funny as that paint doesn't match the paint on the doors and cowl. So this truck was repainted at some point and they tried to match the factory Medium Green.
