The one I work at has some Auto Solutions product they apply if you buy their "protection package"; it's a cleaner wax... it looks like a sealer though. They'll also use spray wax if they color is difficult.

Some dealerships I've secret-shopped charge in upwards of $700-900 for "Sealant" that doesn't necessarily get applied after they roll the new ones off the trucks. Another insight: most cars delivered in the upper 48 get sent on trains... the rail-dust is hard to see. The trucks also end up getting stuff everywhere depending on which end of the vehicle was facing the front.
