Were those live views from the fairing they cut to briefly?

I don't know.
Are you referring to the grayscale video in the left window circa T+4 minutes?
Edit: yes, that's the coverage I referred to.

Yup. I attached screenshots above.  Just after re-entry burn they also seemed to switch feeds very briefly and you could see the same star.

The static photos don't do it justice, but you could see the "nebula effect" flowing from what I assume was the second stage engine.

Funky music on the SpaceX feed as the second stage and payloads continue on the initial orbit.

We're waiting for the orbit circularization burn.

NSF webcast team has signed off.

No, thermal infrared ground tracker footage. The same one they used during ascent - which, coincidentally, showed the top of the fairing getting brighter due to aeroheating.

B1058-6 launched Starlink M20 from LC-40 at Cape Canaveral SFS sending another 60 satellites into orbit. This mission features a veteran booster and veteran fairing halves. The booster landed on JRTI 634km downrange. Psst: reentry🔥
