Do all Burberry trousers have Burberry branded buttons?

I have been gifted this pair of navy Burberry cotton trousers, and although it seems to be of high quality, I'm questioning the authenticity. It was apparently bought cheap second hand but appears as good as new.
The buttons on the trousers are not branded at all, is this a telltale sign?
I've attached some photographs if anyone who knows Burberry well can give their opinion. It would be very highly appreciated!

Lines like this are so huge, and fakes have gotten so good, I don't know how anyone would know the difference between a genuine and a fake anymore. Years ago, I interviewed some second-hand dealers in luxury goods to see if they had tips on how to spot fakes. Some of the stuff is obvious (misspelled names, etc). But a lot of the stuff -- even from crafts-heavy, labor-intensive brands such as Hermes -- it's just very difficult to spot fakes nowadays.

I would be surprised if Burberry uses branded buttons on the back of their trousers. Those look to be smoked mother of pearl, which is pretty standard on high-end pants. That said, I don't know what Burberry uses. If you found a pair that does or does not have branded buttons, I also don't know if that would be an indication of anything given the scope of the line. They must sell thousands of designs every season.

IMO, consumers are in a poor position to judge quality in clothing. Instead, if the pants fit well, make you look good, and make you feel good, I would just go off that.

My Burberry cords, bought at the Burberry store in San Francisco,
have plain buttons.
