In fact, this works for most things on a jersey. Almost nothing is ever embroidered on a jersey: it's all separate patches that are sewn onto the jersey. In the example above, of the fake Flames Heritage jersey, the Heritage patch isn't a patch at all, it's the Heritage Classic logo embroidered directly onto the jersey.
To add to this point (and this image is perfect for showing it), the jersey material around the NHL Shield on real jerseys is not the same as the jersey material found on the rest of the jersey.

On the left, you can pretty clearly see that the jersey material is the regular diamond meshed stuff, on the right it's almost like a silk, with vertical lines rather than the diamond mesh holes.

A lot of them are too cheap to even go for an off-white on the numbers.
