If you look at the dealer book. The matte finish has fine print below it stating it's not to spec and final finish is gloss.

I checked this with a request to Cannondale support (US), for this specific model (S6 hi mod disc dura ace). They told me that the matte black colour scheme is the US version, and the glossy black colour scheme is the European version, both versions exclusive to their respective regions. I did not ask about the other regions.

That might be correct as all the Europe based webshops (Evans, Bike24, etc) and editorials (Road CC) I´ve seen so far only has a picture of the glossy version. However the Cannondale site for the European region still has a picture of the matte version, not the glossy one.

Hmm, on the US site, I'm seeing it in matte and glossy versions (DA vs DA Di2) and both list the same color code - MCH.

I asked support about this as well and they answer: "Yes, they do have the same code since the base colors, highlights and logos are identical but the finish is different and exclusive to the respective versions (Dura Ace Mechanical is matte and the Di2 is gloss)."

So the conclusion so far, based on answers from Cannondale support, is that the S6 Hi Mod DA Disc is matte in the US, glossy in Europe, (did not ask about other regions), and that the Cannondale website for Europe has the wrong pictures for this specific model.

Why is there no Ultegra level disc bike for the US market BUT there is one for UK market? Strange.

Cannondale retains its title for "most adult-minded color schemes."
Specialized meanwhile could not be more hit or miss.
