That is a very good possibility; the firewalls are made with fiberglass composite and shreds into fine tiny particles which may have settled on the manifold. If you continue smelling this, I would wait till your ride is completely cooled off and wash that section. If it continues, then, well, obvious it was not the fibers. However, majority of the smell that come our car we are familiar with what is causing it. Good luck!
