Most of the factory ones I have seen are NOT magnetic.

thank you.

when I acquired my Fiero long ago , its V6 pan had come with a magnetic oil bolt, but even that I'm not sure if it was oem or aftermarket,
I do prefer the simple insurance and indicator on my oil pans

Darth Fiero is THE man! I would take what he says as golden.
