No, the chinese could have simply stolen or downloaded a bunch of NASA pictures and picked one of those to use. Maybe the chinese thought that out of the millions (?) of moon images, no one would notice. Maybe the chinese didn't count on ATS people being willing to spend the time to ferret out the matching image.
