Matte finishes are tougher to clean in the sense that it's advisable to use different products, techniques and you could argue that they are less tolerant to certain chemicals and correction than a gloss finish.

If you get a scratch or marring on a gloss finish, you can often remove this damage by corrective processes. If you get the same scratch or marring on a matte finish you are stuffed, as no amount of corrective work will sort it out (unless you rewrap that panel for example). Extend this thought process to stains left by bugs splatter or bird poop and I'm sure you can see that they are harder to maintain and clean.
