They may not know. The Chinese are notorious for slipping in sub-par components and materials during production. I used to work for an electronics firm that started producing in China and one of the hardest lessons learned was that they required constant oversight. If they ran out of a particular component they would slip in a similar one without regard for how it impacted the performance of a product. It would never be discovered until the product started failing in the field.
