Is there any evidence that they are actually a Bell helmet just imported from Europe?

That is the weirdest rumor...

Mathis knows/knew the guy from motorcycle racing days. My understanding is that design and business side is in states and manufacturing is far east (just like Bell).

This is the case with many of the helmets. a large number of brands are all made in the same couple of factories using company-proprietary molds and layup techniques, then the shells ship to USA and are finished fitting them out here with padding, tethers, etc. (they do just enough work on them here to call them "made in Murica")
