This is only broadly related to patents but maybe someone on here knows. Why is it not required to show a patent number when a product claims to be "patented?"

Building off that, if a product claims to be patented, and it turns out that is a lie, is that punishable by law? I believe this is called False Marking, based on the definition I found here.
