The build.prop is accessible to anyone. It has the read attribute, and is not hidden in any way, so you can go into the system directory of the phone and open it with a text editor. You just can't modify it.
Moto can just change it to "Model Name" + "Number", so it'd read Moto X XT1058 or simply just the model name.
