Eh? Made in Japan?

I find it odd that my 1979 German built BMW had swing arm bearings made in Japan!? I'm 99% sure these are the bearings the factory put in, the seals had over spray on them and looked like they had not been changed since the bike was built.

Does anyone know if it was common back in 1978 for BMW to source bearings from Japan?
