The closest I can figure is maybe they check it out for functionality and possibly do the oven-bake reflow (or re-ball as it's sometimes called). Otherwise there's bleeping little that can be done except to maybe replace a broken surface mount part.

Another thought is they have a card or bunch of cards that have come out of donor machines that they pick up from a computer recycler.
