Sight adjustment at factory

Does Glock adjust the sights at the factory on new guns or do they just center the rear sight on the slide? If they zero it in, how do they do it? Do they fire a few rounds, use a laser device, etc?

If my rear sight on a NIB Glock isn't perfectly centered in the slide does that mean Glock may have done it on purpose to zero the gun?

Thanks to anyone who knows about this.

It is basically centered on the slide like other pistols from the factory.

I have had them to the left, to the right, centered....I think it is a coin toss

Glocks would be a heck of a lot more expensive if they did what you suggested. And that adjustment would only cover windage - what would they do about elevation since all Glocks have the same sights for a given gun model?

Two rounds are fired from Glocks at the factory. Hard to get a group/adjustment/group from 2 shots.
