If it fails early, it gets returned to the store or to the

If your whole computing centre gets compromised because a packet logger
could be inserted into the router, return to the store is your least
problem.  Being able to determine possible scope of a security breach is
certainly important.

You create a whole lot of hypothetical situations, but people buy these things at Sam's Club for $35 and they work just fine. What compromise has there ever been that allowed someone to put a "packet logger" into the firmware of such a thing? Who would bother?

Data Centers of any substance use more elaborate equipment, I am sure. If you are fussing around with one of these little routers, you are not running any "data centre" of any importance that anyone would even want to bother with.
