or maybe its just me and im crazy
That smell is likely either Mothballs or white gas aka Naphtha. My cousin lives in HK and works as a QC engineer in an undisclosed export based business and they use Naphtha to cleaning agent and apparently in some kind of gaseous form to fumigate cargo containers. This is particularly common with low end wood and paper products.
