Here here, i have a range of towels form all manner of places and materials and use them cautiously when doing different jobs to ensure i pick the best one for the job at hand whether a work towel through to a finishing towel.

I don't think anyone would disagree with you on that but going back to the OPs point do you need to know the content, country of manufacture etc when making your choice ?

If all 3 were the right split the right gsm and from south korea, i would buy 1 off each and try them, then make my choice.
Lets just expand on that a little. If there was the same 3 towels you mentioned, plus 1 that wouldnt tell you anything. what would you choose?

If you care about your paint yes. dont know how much the autoglym cloths are, but you can get the best quality towel for £6 and under, why chance using one you know nothing about.
