Default camshaft replacement

Just recieved my new 92 DOHC camshafts but the lobes are not "shining " like the bearing surfaces. Is it fine to install like that?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

make sure you use assembly lube on the cams when you install them.

Thanks to all. I was told that there was a post about reassembling the camshafts / sprockets in relation to the engine block alignement. Do any recall of such a post?
