Is this kind of usage of our photos allowed by stock agencies?

It would depend on where they bought the images, but generally yes, it would be a 'item for sale', and would usually need an appropriate extended/enhanced licence.
However, from what I've read here previously, it seems that some of this sort of buyer are on an 'honour' system with some agencies whereby they only have to pay if the product sells.

My interpretation would be until it actually sells only a standard licence would be needed to display on screen etc but  once purchased it becomes an actual product and the enhanced is needed.

Which is almost impossible to police, without buying an item yourself.

I suppose Shutterstock could demand records of sales involving their products......whether they do or not who knows? (But I think we could hazard a guess)
