Are All Ball Bearings Magnetic?

Found nothing on this subject.
I removed old ball bearings from one of my hubs and they are CRAZY magnetic. Just received some new ones lableled "Stainless Steel" from Amazon. I thought steel was magnetic... The very barely stick to my magnet. I actually had to place them in the cup by hand...
Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance!
