Don't know...

But try this rationale (I'm sure there are others, this is just the first that occurs to me).

If the product is something where I have a choice, I will often choose US or Canadian made, or Japanese, or European - anywhere that manufactures as John Foster outlined in his response - I thought that was well put.

If there is no choice then I don't much care where it was made if its something I need.

So perhaps the customer who selects first world products by default has enough info for their choice, the customer who selects based on price won't care regardless and wouldn't be pushed to select the more expensive product if the cheaper one is labeled "made in China" (or wherever). So labeling something "made in China" is pointless in ad copy.
