The refrigerator is available with no appearance panel, for RV manufacturers who want to insert their own panels, usually to match the cabinet doors. Optionally, Dometic will supply a panel for each door - I don't think there's a choice of colour, but it might be reversible (perhaps black on one side, white or "stainless steel" look on the other). Whether from Dometic or custom, the panels are held in place by the bezel surrounding the door - the panel slides in from the top.
If you don't have panel inserted, you see the foil face of some insulation - the refrigerator is not intended to be left that way.
Escape could presumably put raised-panel wood inserts on the refrigerator, to match the cabinets (like I have in my motorhome), but that just seems like pointless expense and weight to me.
