Kind of guessing here...
I believe the right way to think about it is if it brings any harm to
their owners. So, showing the license plate can obviously bring harm.
Perhaps any sticker or something else peculiar to a given car could
also bring harm (help one identify the owner). I'd say that if the
license plate is erased you'd be safe.
