If what was shipped was the laser-guided variant, then I fail to see how countries like Russia or China could have gleaned something from it that they haven't already figured out 15-20 years ago.

My understanding is that it was a non-functioning display model that had no working components in it.

Then again, news reports have been known to be wrong.

There are several types of trainers. All are inert, but some have no seeker at all and are just used for show/realistic weights, while others have real laser or radar seekers in them for training. We don't really know which was shipped, and I don't think the one is the picture is the same one, the picture is probably what the reporting person got when they googled images of "hellfire training missile".
