OEM vs. aftermarket Ultegra parts. Is there a difference?

I ordered a build kit from some online company and foolishly forgot to ask if the parts were OEM or aftermarket. They were not packaged in the typical gray Shimano boxes.

So, is there a difference between OEM Ultegra parts vs. aftermarket Ultegra parts? Derailleurs? Shifters? Brake calipers?

OEM parts come in plastic bags instead of boxes. Other than that, no difference.
