The term "logo ego" covers this group. Unless a maker puts some real handwork into specific areas or uses parts held to closer tolerances than most other makers, the final product is not going to be significantly better than any other except by chance combination of random parts...
Still, if using quality components in a build how many of us would want a stripped lower rollmarked with a brand we specifically avoided when buying the other parts? (Even knowing the stripped lower otherwise would be adequate.)

I've purchased five stripped lowers and each time could have bought cheaper lowers I didn't care for. Instead I paid more for what I wanted. As time goes on I'm glad I got the rollmark I wanted. YMMV...
