Question How are the baseboards attached at the factory?

We drove 440 miles from home to Grapeland, TX. When we arrived and I set up the trailer, I walked into the bedroom and the baseboard was lying on the floor. There was never any glue or nails in it from the factory. I checked the baseboard on the other side of the wall in the bathroom and it had no glue or nails, either. Hmmm...how are they supposed to be attached? Staples? Construction adhesive?

I have noticed I have some loose ones. I haven't looked real close, but I thought I saw very small brads or staples. I may get very small brass screws. The walls aren't too thick for trying to pound in nails.

Mine did the same thing, I went to LOWS and bought larger ones that matched the decor, cut and installed using my nail gun. The baseboards that came with the trailer did not totally cover the cut edge of the flooring in a few spots, the new ones do.
