You make it sound like Nikon is unique in it or maybe even suggesting with it, that it is a 'Japanese' thing.

Many companies do this, and non related to country or camera specific.

Interesting on Nikon's own site they only mention improvements to AF-C. Why do they have to lie? Why not just say both are improved?

It is very common. There have been many instances where Nikon fixed/improved on things that they never reported in the Release Notes of the firmware update. Nikon is well known for such hidden/secret improvements.

Yeah, but why mention that AF-C is better then. Why not just fix that, and not say, as with AF-S?

Possibly because AF-S was supposed to work better than it did (read incandescent light AF problems etc) and they fixed this "on the quiet", whereas AF-C was just improved as it was never intended to work as well as it does with the improvement of the firmware, but they decided to make it better anyway.
