The set should have come with Shimano cables and cable housing..... housing that says Shimano in gold, slightly embossed letters.
Brake cable adjusters are different.
Yeah, I noticed the stickers, right after my last post. They came with cables, but not with cable housing. The gear indicator "sticker" fell off on one of the shifters, not sure if it's a sticker or a actual red plastic piece in another version. The other thing I see is cable adjustment in the stock photo has a little "line" in it while mines dosen't, so there are variances.

Right now it could be fake or it could be as what others are saying, different quality issues based on countries.
