By "painting the inside of the lens", I'm assuming you mean the inside of the barrel and the edges of the lens, right? I've never even heard of the latter.

I would assume that it is typical to coat any surface inside the lens that could reflect light. That way, they avoid stray reflections and loss of contrast.
