Default Brake Calipers seem to have force field

I know this is a strange question. I have a 2014 Touring Sport with red painted calipers. I am the second owner. I have had the car almost a year and put about 4K miles on it. When I wash the car the calipers are never dirty. Brake dust on the wheels but the calipers are pristine like I already washed them. WTH? Did someone put some magic coating on them that repels brake dust?

Are you complaining or bragging?

My guess is that the wind kicked up by the wheels blows most of the dust off the stationary caliper and centrifugal force makes the dust stick to the wheels. But I'm no Scientist nor do I portray one on TV.
