When certain polymers such as PVC are exposed to UV radiation the polymer molecules on the surface are converted to a complex structure made up of polyenes and this can result in a brownish discoloration often called UV discoloration which should disappear when exposure ends

What you describe is the opposite unless the cover somehow removes a surface coating exposing the above UV degradation
