Not always true.  Our outsourced support in India were also our first 
layer of network troubleshooting, and they monitored everything related to 
the products they supported.    They were almost always the first to call 
the engineers (in .us and .ca) to alert them of issues.

It's all about /what/ you hire them to do.....
