Default [Q] IMEI is same even after motherboard changed but not sure they really changed

Hi ,

I have Nexus 7 2012 3G Model imported from USA whereas I stay in India,

I have done RMA recently , it was my 3rd time to go there, I had battery & motherboard issue this time, they changed my battery but not board but claimed that they did but i was smart to check data so when i checked my whole data was there so i got to know that they didn't changed it at all so again i give it there & told the issue,

Now problem is i am not facing any battery issue but its taking almost 8 hours to charge battery & giving 4.5 hrs on screen so i looked further so got to know that when motherboard changes it used to be IMEI also gets changes whereas i double checked with box & setting - status that my IMEI is same as before along with SSN ( sim serial number ),I seriously cant trust them whether they really changed my board or not, Is there anyway i can confirm with myself?

As i mentioned before it was my 3rd time for RMA , service is good as it does not takes time to do that like weeks but i cant trust them due to last incident & main problem is only 2 days remained to end my warranty, & this device gave me loads of issues till now, So Can anyone help me with this? I am ready to provide any details to look further.

Thanks in advance & Help will be Appreciated,

Try checking mac address that is hardware specific so if it is same then it is not changed. Btw imei is also hardware specific so i am sure it is not changed.
