That is a good thing. It might be so that the product you buy can be

But, it is also common to have some ranking applied to the preferred
suppliers based on company specific ranking parameters.

10_MAIN_SUPPL and 90_ALT_SUPPL (with the default data set, which you can
expand), there is no code that uses such parameters.
