Mark,
I concur with Tony's response.  Compare the files you sent them, then look
at the files they provided you.  Generally board houses will not change
thermals unless your gerber files do not meet their minimal manufacturing
guidelines.  To prevent changes to your Gerbers, I would include a Fab note
that prevents the board house from adding, changing, or modifying the
artwork without prior written approval. We only use this note when designing
very high speed boards and the gerbers are "build to print" and may not to
be adjusted by the fabricator to match manufacturing tolerances.  Otherwise
all designs are adjusted by the board house.
