I'm sure they (any manufacturers) don't test every one.
Usually it's some sort of statistical sampling.
Any manufacturing process is going to have some level of defects. The trick is to keep the level 'acceptable' and to have a system in place to handle the defective units that get through.
As you might expect, this manufacturer did have a good system in place. I got a new rod.
