as far as i know hp does not track any of the parts you mention in a retail workstation that you buy from them they only track the main system serial number
however if you buy a sec cpu kit from HP that may have the cpu number recorded
ram is not tracked per say, but hp does have ways to determine if the ram you are calling about is a valid item
the power supply is the same as the ram
the motherboard is not tracked in a new retail system, however all board replacements are tracked by hp and again they have methods to check system or motherboard warranty status

When referring to 'HP factory', it is worth considering the very wide meaning of the term 'HP factory'.
1. An official document issued by the Bureau of Indian Standards (dated 16-09-2016)
defines Foxconn CZ, S.R.O. in the Czech Republic as 'Manufacturing Unit' of a Workstation product Brand HP.
2. On the shipment label on the package that contained my HP Z820 workstation, that I ordered in year 2012 from local HP representatives, it was printed: Hewlett Packard C/O Foxconn CZ s.r.o. U Zamecku 27 Pardubice, 532 01 CZ
Inside many brands of desktop computers and workstations, a considerable number of electronic devices, PCB's, cable assemblies and whatnot are manufactured by subcontractors including Foxconn, and the above examples indicate that Foxconn may also take a major part in assembling complete computer products.
The CPU is undoubtedly manufactured by Intel, so it is not necessary to expect it to be manufactured by the HP factory.
However It is important to note that design, selection of components and then testing of the product (during manufacturing stages and final acceptance tests of complete products) are done by HP .
