Are these textured like /dev/tty or are these smooth?

MT3 ABS keycaps have a noticeable texture. It is rougher than the "textured" finished that Signature Plastics uses. Let alone the "smooth" texture that are used in many SA sets. (FYI Signature plastics mentions a polished texture as well, but I've never seen this in the wild. But I digress.) Some time ago a fellow drop member posted this image comparing SA and MT3. Hopefully you find it useful.

Thank you for your answer. I think that the texture of /dev/tty (PBT) cannot be seen on photos, so I doubt that the texture or lack there of of ABS MT3 can be seen on photos. Usually ABS is smooth (without texture), but I am not sure, so I am asking.
