Default Capacitors with Inside-out Vents

I found some bizarre capacitors on a lamp driver board. When i saw them, i thought they were bulging (despite the board being brand new), but upon closer inspection, i realized that they must of stamped the vents from the inside of the can. I thought it must have been a quality control f--- up but looking at it, i think they must have done it intentionally because both capacitors are that way, despite being different physical sizes. Now all i have to wonder is, why?


Here are some photos i tried to take of their vents, though i might have to retake them with my DSLR as my cellphone camera sucks at close-ups.




For all i know, this might actually be really common and i'm just spewing out like an idiot. :|

Surely when they cut the wrapper, they cut it too much.
I have also found capacitors with that aspect.

I don't think I've ever seen any with outward vent stamps. Maybe someone in the factory messed up. The whole thing looks pretty cheap and nasty, especially if they cut the sleeve too short as well.
