I haven't bought one in over 10 years, have 12 different measures and toolhead setups. All of mine are plain aluminum and I used fine steel wool to clean them up to satin smooth, all worked better than original finish. No discernible amount of metal was removed.

If the newer ones are teflon coated then I would agree with not polishing the bar itself.
