Air Mauritius has 2 A350's in service and 2 still on the final production line.The latter 2 are msn 354 and 365 which would be 3B-NBR and S and would only be ready for delivery in the next couple of months assuming delivery to Air Mauritius.Neither of these aircraft would already be painted in Air Mauritius colours.354 and 365 are in primer and tails in Air Mauritius colours.
Airbus usually (unless customers specify otherwise) paints the vertical stabilisers of customers' aircraft immediately after fabrication at Stade and before they are transported to Toulouse for final assembly.

I have been to the Airbus factory and to see a pre painted A380 vertical stabilizer arrive on a huge trailer is quite a sight.
