 oboe tuning and manufacture

So, flutes can come in A=440 all the way up to 445. So, in a sense, the tuning of the horn is set when it's made. I've heard the same thing said of oboes, the tuning is established at the factory when it's made. Having said that, are oboes tuned to 440,441, 442, 445 etc when made as well? Granted, playing a 442 flute at 440 isn't much of an issue and the pitch difference may very well be imperceptible. What about other instruments? Are clarinets made in specific frequencies?
Thanks guys!
