People might believe it's one brand or another, synthetic or conventional, a certain weight, grade etc. But unless someone actually observes what the factory fill is; it's very difficult to determine.
It's quite easy to imagine some supply side assembly line variables where there is a different factory fill oil from time to time.
It's of very little consequence anyway. If you want a good "break in" - change the oil FILTER once or twice to capture any tailings or unwanted metal fragments
Top off the oil after filter change. Then at 1000 - put SYNTHETIC oil in. There is virtually no engine wear with synthetic oil.
