The only branding I would look for is BREMBO. Not BRYMO, BRYMBO, BRDEX, BYRDWO, BYBRE, BYEBYE... Or some other chinese crap.

Its like a truck with a FROD branding.

What does FROD stand for?

Wasn't a question of showing off some brand label (or, off-brand-yet-somehow-still-branded label, in this case). It's a matter of changing something and not letting us know. RE made a big deal about the "BREMBO BRAKES!" so it is what it is. But, when you go into a dealer to get a part swapped out and the part is different somehow, I question what I'm getting.

Correct, RE sold that branding on the brakes as value for money. To remove that, while possibly changing nothing of the quality (really upgrading the quality), nonetheless changes perception of value by removing a brand logo RE aggressively sold for its value. Again, if it works, I'm happy. But I am also sympathetic to those who are a bit miffed.

Maybe it is as simple as being able to know which ones have been replaced.

I'm sure they are still made by ByBre, they just don't have the logo on there.

Clearly they were in a hurry to correct this issue before more people got injured or killed and probably left the logo off to expedite the manufacturing process is my guess.

The ByBre logo is in the casting mold of the caliper so it's omission is intentional.

I was a bit disappointed that they didn't also put in new brake pads, not that I expected it. I'm also not convinced that they bled the brakes, but no big deal as I did it last winter (Oh, wait, it's still winter here - 5" of new snow today!)

I was disappointed as well. The tech said I have plenty  of pad left, so no need to replace them... eh, oh well. I really like my dealer, they treat me very well, so maybe I was hoping they'd upgrade my pads. Nope.

I've never had issues with my brakes, and even after the R&R they act no different than the old ones. So, I'm sure they did all they said they did, which includes bleeding them.
