But would they even do it...? I always thought by default, the iOS installed map app took precedence?

Correct, have to jailbreak typically to get rid of those kinds of things.

Read More about it here. Dev's can use google maps sdk to forward to Google maps app. Its up to devs tho.

With the Google Maps SDK for iOS, developers can feature Google maps in their applications on the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad. Also, the SDK makes it simple to link to Google Maps for iPhone from inside your app, enabling your users to easily search and get directions.
