Default "Authorized ATF brands"

Ok. So, I looked thru the "Authorized" ATF brands and there were some real "Cheapos" in there, but I also noticed that Dextron 4 was not in the list...really, is that truly a different composition or is it just because it is a GM product?

It IS and was told so and shown the container it came in when I had mine flushed. I also paid extra to have the pan dropped and a new filter put in as the original quote only paid for a cleaner and then all fluid changed but I felt better having the filter changed too.
