The broader picture is, its just marketing.
At the end of the day most automakers build vehicles of similar spec with slight variations. its just under what type of marketing they're able to carry out and the consumers they can attract from that.

Where a vehicle is produced can have a large impact on its build quality and the availability of parts. Sure there are models that get region specific adjustments, but when you are buying domestic I think there is an expectation that its made there.

To some extent that's true but I feel it has more to do with management at those plants which comes back to the manufacture as a whole.
In fact it should be a reason to be suspect of the entire brand if build quality falls from relocating.

The majority of automakers only care about their bottom line, and outsourcing of various components has become a common practice throughout the industry. That's not done to find better parts, but cheaper.
