These "extra" units are then sold by the factory to other outlets. Fakes that are essentially real but not sold or under the control of the company whose name is on the product.

This mode of operation is also called the "ghost shift" ...

For those interested in learning more about how the Chinese factory ecosystem and their developers work and think I found the following book an interesting and enlighting read.
Maybe these calculators are even improved versions of the HP model...
