engine block stamping...a question for the experts

I Believe that ALL 02 engine blocks were stamped with the cars VIN #'s from the factory, and that the replacement "crate" motors had a few numbers with X's stamped...but what about motors with NO stamping's? Replacement or factory? I guess it is possible someone could miss a few carts going down the line but that's not really a good argument. Happy monday I took the day off to wrench on the 1600!

new bare blocks bought over the counter from BMW? From what I understand, the blocks with a number bracketed by xx's were factory re-man engines.
