Not if they are recognized to contain lead when they go through inspection but I suspect some slip through.

Not deliberately. Does it? Yes all the time. China has few enforced safety standards and the US customs office has much more important things to do than routinely test Chinese paint. Even children's toys are only minimally tested.
