I think it's a lot simpler than that. They observe their competition and realize that nobody really cares much about documentation unless they're forced to by some ISO or government regulatory requirement, and being relatively new in the tech industry they see no particular reason to pay documentation the lip service that more established businesses give it before they end up ignoring it.

I contribute my two cents here:
Most Chinese companies have no proprietary technology. Secondly, most Chinese bosses think business is an art of connection(Guanxi). Good processes and practices come next.

What do you see the reasons? I have been with alocal Chinese company for three years and the notion of "documentation" seems to be very disconnected with local staff.
