I dunno if they will coat them with the bearings still in, I would ask
why would you want to keep them in? if you do you will have to tape the flat surface then it will look funny, (unless its the same color as new coat) if you try to tape just the bearing you will get paint around the seat or race so if the bearings are ever to be removed the coat might chip when the bearing is pushed out?
typically you can save everything if you get the right removal tool so all you will have to do is reverse the process..
sheesh if they are stock bearings now would be a good time to install a sealed high performance bearing
you are aware the stock bearings are only sealed on one side right?
stockers tend to absorb moisture over time making the grease funky
