Bushnell does not make scopes.   Bushnell sells scopes that are manufactured by various OEMs.  In the case of Super Sniper, Bushnell provides warranty service.  Everything else is done by SWFA.

Super Sniper, to the best o fmy knowledge, is made by Kenko in Japan (LOW and Asia Optical are not the only optics makers in Japan, to the best of my knowledge).

This is a quote from our local optics expert.  For all I know, they might be made at the North pole by elves, they damn sure get the job done.

The pictures at the linked website show two different scopes.  One with Super Sniper type nobs and another with Elite 4200 type knobs.  Are they ripping off both designs?
