You're welcome. :)
Yes, if you ever seen a Smokey Black horse, their main, and tail tips are reddish, and some have light colors like what you described.. So does a Liver Chestnut..
I knew a guy that had a buckskin with the zebra striping on the legs, and at the ends, they would be very light colored.. It's just an affect of the creame gene.

Smoky black doesn't always present with a different visual type to black without cream, so looking for reddish hints in the coat is not any reliable method. As well as that, plenty of blacks fade out to a very rusty colour without cream being present at all.

Google isn't a particularly reliable source. Most of those images are mish moshes of blacks, smoky blacks, smoky creams, I even see some browns and bays in there.

A black horse with one creme gene, aka smoky black, usually looks no different from a black horse with no cream. If anything they present as a sun-faded black.

This is the color I think of, when I think of a smokey black Horse.. They are almost purpleish, or something.

The first two are confirmed to be smoky black. There are only three ways to tell a horse is smoky black - testing them, if they have a double dilute parent, or they produce a dilute foal to a non-dilute horse (or a double dilute to a single dilute partner).
