Mine are coated with something so there does not seem to be a metal on metal contact, but for me it wouldn't make much difference. If it effected my knives I wouldn't be using them.

Not in my kitchen. Like some cellphone carriers it will only allow a limited number of friends and will not hold some of my different ones.

Not to mention if you care for your blades, you wont put them in a block.

I have these knives. I have several other small inexpansive knives.

Wusthof Classic
2 1/2" Paring knife (which is curved and looks like a mini boning knife)
3 1/2" Paring knife
5" Santoku
6" Cook's knife
6" Cleaver
Cuisinart
5" Santoku
2 Piece Carving set (I keep these in original box)

All have blade covers (except the cleaver which I have hanging by the hole on my wall) and I keep them in an OXO Stainless Steel Utensil Holder blade up.

another reason why a mag bar with exposed metal may not be the best choice....i think the noise of sliding that knife across metal would be like nails on a chalkboard to me

That's really not an issue. There is no sliding. You lift it off, you put it on. My knife blades have marks on them from sharpening but none from the magnets.

i was just referring to the chuckabocho that buzz posted...agreed that there should be no sliding with pretty much any other knife
