If memory serves, Nishiki 2fat tubing was oversize chromoly. The sticker could just mean that the bike was assembled here. I looked up the retail for a '96 Blazer and it was $270 at the time.

While there's a slim chance the tubing was produced in the US, my strong suspicion is that it's of southeast Asian origin to keep the price point down, as well as the low-end parts mix on that $270 retail.
