Thanks,
I don't want to change or edit the registry.
I just wanted to know how it works:

my question was:

how is it possible that I can access my TIM ITALIA private marketplace since I am using a VODAFONE ITALY branded phone?

Apparently is not a registry key. There should be something on the SIM Card,
unless LG's app "Network configurator" changes that key according to the SIM Card insert.

Where did you read that I want to change that registry key?

There are a couple of apps that will safely change the MOMarketplace. They are similar to my OEM Marketplace XAPs, except they work as actual apps that you install and then make a selection in (requires root-unlock). One of them even allows you to lock the file read-only so the phone doesn't overwrite it with its branded one.

Why not just save a copy of your prefered file, and after an updated copy that over the restricted mess ?
