What exactly is ground Kobe beef?

I've always thought that Kobe beef was just high fat beef with fat that was very well marbled, specifically from Wagyu cows in Kobe. But now, I'm seeing all these Kobe beef burgers in restaurants that want to make a burger sound like it's worth more than 5 dollars.

If ground beef doesn't have any marbling, what is the point of having it be "Kobe," or even "Wagyu?" Isn't that just extra fatty ground beef?
