For my 2 cents, I'd say stealth hulls probably wouldn't count as camo (I'd totally agree the dynamic one should, since that's its point). The 'stealth hull' is, as far as everything in the books suggests, just a 'realistic' design for minimizing signature as much as possible without actually being able to remove it entirely (since as lots of folks have rightly pointed out, there's no ACTUAL stealth in space, just tricks that you can use to help minimize your signature).

Since the stealth hull is more about optimization than actually outright camouflaging, I don't think it would qualify as camo for the purposes of determining plain sight.
