How did the factory determine they were mislabeled?
Note I said "apparently mis-labeled".
After discovering the wrong fuses had been installed in the monoblocs, I bought replacements of the correct values per the owner manual. Two new fuses blew upon turn on. I had a separate issue to have checked so took the amps to the factory for service. When the tech installed their regular fuses they worked fine.
So upon reflection, either my replacement fuses were mis-labeled or defective. There was no problem in the amps to cause that failure.

I don't have a horse in this race, but I do have some experience with "mis-labeled" fuses.
It's pretty much common knowledge in the automobile service & repair industry that there are various brands of Chinese knock-off fuses floating around that don't meet the specs that they are claimed to meet. Like so-called 20 amp fuses that don't blow until over 50 amps are fed through them. I've personally witnessed this.
So my advice is to stay away from bagged bulk assortment fuses that you might encounter in dollar stores and the like.
