You might not believe it, but I can say based on first hand experience that hard drive manufacturers take data integrity very seriously. None of them would risk losing customer data just to gain extra performance. The potential backlash from data loss would be far worse than scoring lower on a benchmark.
Plus the people running benchmarks, especially for tier 1 OEMs, aren't stupid. Lying about cache flushes is pretty easy to detect so the likelihood of getting away with it is pretty low right from the start. Pissing off OEMs is another thing hard drive manufactures would never, ever take risks with.
