Andersen glazing bead clean / replace

I'm preparing to paint the exterior of an Andersen sliding door and am wondering about the glazing bead. It seems to either be pitted or moldy. It appears to be a rubbery manufactured strip but may be caulk. I'd appreciate thoughts on dealing with it. Can I just scrape it off and apply new caulk or is it a trim piece that is part of the window assembly? It looks to be in excellent shape except for esthetics so I'm wondering if paint is an option. The door was originally part of the actual exterior but now opens to a 3-season room.
Thanks for any assistance.

Hard to tell from the extreme close up what model of door that even is. I assume it's a Narrowline?

I cant say that I have seen them come with a wet glaze on the outside, but anything is possible. Maybe a photo of a corner would help us to see if its wet glazing (silicone) or if it's a vinyl durometer.

See page 7 for painting info if it is a Fibrex door.
