Right. MB does not produce glass themselves, but buying original means you are sure the comply with specs, i.e. parameters for rainsensor, exact color and more.
In principle OEM products can be just as good, if they are produced to the same spec, but you cannot be completely sure.
MB is not that expensive with parts as for example som Japanese brands, and I always by original parts whenever possible to save me the trouble.
That is in fact also a MB policy - to minimize OEM aftermarket.
