Recieved different hubs, should I be upset?

I bought a set of wheels off of BicycleWheels.com, Weinman LP18's that were supposed to be laced to Formula hubs.

When I received the wheels, they were in amazing shape from shipping and seem to be perfectly trued. The only thing is, the hubs are labeled Origin 8.

Are these the same quality as what I was expecting to receive, just with Origin 8 branding, or did I get lesser quality hubs?
