And there would be no need to remove the receiver from the barrel to chrome the pads,, just mask the area you don't want plated, and only mask the area that's in the plating solution.

I own an August '42 SA with a 2-42 barrel that has chrome pads. It's on a RIA/EB rebuild that I received from CMP as a service grade in 2002. Not sure when it was rebuilt, but it looks like they may have reclaimed a barrel from an earlier rifle and then added the chrome. That's all I can figure. I had thought the chamber was in the white, but after looking at a few pictures of chambers, I think it is parked.
