Speed Rail Fittings - Anodized?

I was about ready to order some speed rail fittings when I noticed that as an option they sell them in an "anodized" finish. I know that frame pipe needs to be anodized or otherwise treated or it will put rub marks on the tubes.

Can anyone tell me if the normal Speed Rail Fittings (aluminum/magnesium alloy) it their normal form causes rub marks. Do most folks get the more expensive anodized? Many thanks.

They do cause rub marks.

Where I bought them from didn't have the option (which I didn't know at the time).

I'd rather not have rub marks, but I don't really care enough to buy new ones.

Don't know the cost difference or availability of the anodized version.
