A good set of flat pedals purchased with a bike are going to be half that amount and a rideable pair of basic flats even less.  Aside from my contention that pedal choice is so broad that it’s best left to the point of sale, I do agree that on your example the best case would be for the bike company to spec good-enough flat pedals using their purchasing power. I’d even agree that below a certain price point (I don’t know what number that is) most people buying a mountain bike would be well served by having it include some good-enough flats. Maybe with size-specific platforms even.  But realistically, I think the most likely better-case scenario is the spec dollars being spent elsewhere and the shop discounting the right pedals at time of sale.
