I was told (bye a bike shop in the UK) several years ago that EU regulations meant that all bikes needed pedals and reflectors in the EU.  AND that the reason they were so cheap was that usually it was the retailer that had to stump up the coat for them and not the manufacturer.  Not sure if this is true but I’ve bought very few bikes that haven’t come with a bag of reflectors and pedals (rarely actually attached to the bike) and that includes both budget hardtails (jump bikes and Calibre) and expensive full suspension bikes (YT, Transition & Orange).  None of them have ever been ridden further than across the car park from shop to the van.
