If you seriously believe the source code Hauwei released for examination was everything in their systems then theres a bridge for sale you might be interested in. A piece of networking kit has multiple microcontrollers and CPUs all running their own bespoke firmware and the chances of anyone noticing if some code from one seemingly harmless chip on the corner of the board has not been fully disclosed is close to zero. The only way to be 100% sure what is on the chips is open then up and read the bits in the EEPROM direct.
