The compound that is used on the buff is what will give you a matte finish. The compound that I am familiar with is a greaseless compound which can be purchased from just about any compound manufacturer.

The easiest way to achieve matte finishes these days is to use nonwoven products. However, you can also achieve results with cotton or equal wheels plus an abrasive compound such as tripoli [link to product info at Amazon by ed.] or equal. Suggest you talk to compound mfr.
