Not quite. Fuller does the same thing we do - sift moldy PNP germaniums for low leakage and the right gain spread.  
The Dunlops use unknowns rebranded as NKT-275 and will be happy to sell them to you for $40/pair, i.e., they don't want to sell them to you.  
Between Steve Daniels, RG, and friends, we can all toss together a dynamite FF clone without any help from Dunlop.
