Strange how I clicked on the Sulu nick and it lead to the bio of the poster answering the question.

Just because we have no footage of him peeling it off and sticking it back on again doesn't mean the rumour is an unqualified one.

We know because Frakes said that he grew it during the break between the first and second seasons. No reason he'd make that up.

There is that scene in DS9's Defiant where he peels part of it off.
