Yeah, fakes and a fake excavation. Excavated bowls never are pristine, and often there is glaze loss or ingrained soil, depending on the soil type.
What makes it double suspicious is that all of these should be together, have a mark, AND underglaze red. These three are individually highly unlikely, of course even more so when combined.
