No, they're going for more than that. They're always going for more than what they are listed on the exchange.
Let's say you spend enough zen on keys to sell on the exchange for ECs to buy a Time Sci or Destroyer - there is another player who spent X amount of keys to open boxes or gather lobi to put that ship on the exchange.
The exchange prices drop due to supply and undercutting, and because there is no listing fee on the exchange which allows for some (pretty hysterically dumb) price wars - the actual % of ships unlocked never changes, nor does the number of keys purchased on average across the entire population of the game.
