Chris follows up:

"Is any kind of tape used on the fuselage, like on the ribs?"

Interesting question, and I think the answer is "yes", at least most of
the time.  The longerons were reinforced with lozenge tapes on the OAW
and Albatros-built examples that have survived, and this is visible in
period photos as well, sometimes.

Of course, with the fuselages so often overpainted at the Jastas, this
detail is easy to overlook and difficult to confirm.
