Question First Matt paint question?

To those in the know, is there a way of removing slight scratches off Matt paint?
Can you T-cut Matt paint or not?
I have some light scratches Iíve noticed while cleaning her today around the driver side bumper, as if someone has reversed into a hedge - Is there a way of polishing these out?

You cannot polish matte paint as by definition this will remove the texture that absorbs light to make it matte.
When I worked on a matte finish showcar it had a matte clear coat. I'm not sure if this can be reapplied as it has its own hint of colour.
