Vietnamese made Pentax F AF 1.7x TC????

I got one of these brand new from Japan.
The box has made in vietname, but clearly has a sticker over it.
The pamphlets all say Made in vietnam and copyright 2008.

OK so thats easy to explain!!

But on the TC it has engraved on the mount made in Vietnam.

I'm not fussed that its made there, but i thought they stopped production years ago. Maybe they did a new manufacturing run for Japan only??

Any ideas on this mystery?
