That seems to be Chengdu's primer of choice for their composite parts. The locations match up with past descriptions of where composites have been applied.
But wait, the J-20 didn't have that green primer... and it probably has a much higher composite ratio.

It might have something to do with the fact that J-20 needs to have special stealth coating applied, whereas J-10 and JF-17 only need a coat of aviation paint. In any event, for none-stealthy Chengdu airframes, greenish primer are used in places where we know composites have been applied, especially wing skins.
