Just checked my 9 examples of the Bachmann BR vans (38-160, 38-160A, 38-161, 38-170, 38-171, 38-171A and the Modelzone triple pack) - all have different roof finishes. Maybe all of a particular catalogue number have the same roof finish but then if you are going to have more than one of a particular catalogue number then you ought to be renumbering them, so running a mucky paint brush over the roof is hardly troublesome.

The latest one from Bachmann, 38-170A, has a very light nearly white roof which contrasts sharply with the varying greys of the rest of the 38-170/171/180/181 releases. As an "early"liveried model it has quickly gone into the box of stock to use on my layout in its earlier BR period rather than the c 1966 stock box.
