I can't find the article right off. There was a listing, I think from Takara's United line, that listed Tracks as a Wheeljack repaint. It's definitely more than fan speculation.

Last time, Hasbro told him to just repaint Sunstreaker as Sideswipe, but then he worked out with a few tweaks he could make the transformation work differently to give each bot a different look.
This is probably true. I'd bet Hasbro does that with a lot of figures at this point. At any rate, it doesn't really matter, IMHO. We are getting both Wheeljack and Tracks. I'm happy.
Though I'd like to re-iterate someone else's sentiment. My Decepticon shelf is looking pretty sparse compared to the Autobots.
