I'm thinking that maybe that causes a reflection for a camera that lets you see the top of the vehicle in the "bird's eye view."

I have a strong feeling that the darker area is there as a point of reference. It seems to be close to lining up to where you would ideally be able to see out the front window without using the camera. The area that is normal is what you can't see as well. and what you would mostly be using the system for anyways. I know it doesn't perfectly line up because this is an inherently difficult area to fill, given that people have different driving positions due to height and body shape, so I think they did it as more of a conservative area. Probably a lawyer somewhere saying that they don't want people driving around using only the front view camera, so make sure they know to look out their window to see what is in this area.
