YEP --- fiberglass is Cheap !
Normal Flysurfer "rigid-LE-battens" are plastic a bit like grass trimmer line. They are sewn to pockets which makes LE more shape/rigid.

And I answered in this thread for Bille on this background that what if kite design is that kite must be flexible to allow it turn properly. Also lesser point load from batten to fabric so that fabric will last longer. etc. There could be lot of other reasons than "being cheap" for selecting more flexible material.
