Is that official fender welt from Volvo or something a third party is offering?

...the reason I ask is that from here, that material looks like simply the standard fabric-backed vinyl sewn around a core...that is typical of what is used on edges in the interior, but I wouldn't expect to see that style of material on the exterior, where the cotton backing fabric would hold moisture (and moisture held in a seam immediately gives me a scare...!) I don't mean to rain on anybody's parade...but for exterior use, I would expect to see non-fabric backed vinyl which won't hold moisture long-term...any thoughts, or have I identified the white component wrong?
