It wasn't released country-wide the way STID was, IIRC. I think it was just one city, Hong Kong, which was counted just as Hong Kong, not China. I'd have to check on it again.
No, Hong Kong is counted as a separate release to China. Star Trek
made $1.282 million in Hong Kong, separate from the $8.5 million it made in China. Star Trek
didn't get as big a release in China as STID
did. That's true. But it was released there. The Chinese market has dramatically expanded for Hollywood films since then.
