All this from the same airport that has the usual Green & Red channels for customs and in the 10 or so times I've flown though this airport in recent years there has never been any sign on a customs person in the red channel. In September last year when I flew through there twice they even had a big sign by the red channel exit advising you to pick up the courtesy phone if you had anything to declare. They have obviously heard of a famous saying from the Tui billboards in the UK as well! :-)
