"Exige" embroidery on seats?

I've searched the forum and had no luck finding an answer to this trivial question... but I've seen Exige seats with and without the embroidery "Exige" - both claiming to be OEM. Does anyone know what determined if a car came with "Exige" on the seats or not?

To expand the fun of friendly conversation, let me also ask what were the interior trim options for the Elise/Exige?

I know the stock seats of my 2007 Exige S had Exige embroidery (white). Not sure of the differences, just know that's what I had.

There's a decent pic at this URL.

I believe the '06 and '07's had the "Exige" stitched on the seats. The '08 and up did not, except for the sport models with the carbon seats.

The car does have a custom interior so take that into account, but most of the rest of the interior doesn't look OEM and this stitching does look OEM:
