Are you sure it isn't gravel specific?

Bikes usually come with the shock specially tuned for the suspension design of the bike. They make small internal adjustments to the shock to work the specific leverage curve of the mountain bike.

Depending on what bike the shock came from, it could feel good or could feel like shit on your own bike.

It COULD MAYBE have a bit more compression damping.
It COULD MAYBE just be a sticker/marketing without any internal changes.

If you weigh more than the target consumer, it could play in your favor.

You could not notice it at all.

Roll of the dice.
