Phil, yes, you are correct, the cells inside any battery are standard catalogue items. There are many suppliers of 18650 cells out there for example, and they are not all created equal. The manufacturing process of balancing the cells, connecting them, mounting the electronic module, the design of the interface with the tool / charger (HW and SW) is all (certainly in my world) unique to a tool / battery platform. It has to comply with many internal and external quality and safety standards and undergoes rigorous testing. I can't speak for other manufacturers though.
That will be specified by the buyer to the battery manufacturers.

Same goes for chisels and planes same product but the level and care of finish might change according the the suppliers price point.
