Reps lie all the time so you will buy their product.

I don't think they explicitly lie and tell customers false information, its more a lie by omission. EVGA is not clear as to how they bin their cards (if you just try overclock the cards by 1 MHz, test for stability, that is binning).
The fact of the matter is that each companies orders tens of thousands of reference kits from Nvidia, who I am almost certain sends them random batches cards that have passed internal validation (i.e.they don't have "preferred" AIB where they send the better chips). Because the sample sizes are so large, and the fact that all the cards need to be sold at some point, eventually all manufacturers will have the same maximum overclocks when talking about aggregate statistics (this does not take into account any BIOS, or custom board modifications).
