Well, anything is possible in the world of boat manufactures. Lord knows most of them have done really dumb things over the years. Installing hundreds of plugs "for effect" would be one of them.
However...... What year is the boat? It's my understanding that the practice of gluing down teak decks did not really get going until the late 1990s-2000s when high-end manufacturers like Fleming, Grand Banks, the big yacht manufacturers, etc. began doing it when adhesives specifically for this purpose were developed.
