Would Samoa be an over-wintering site for Golden Plovers?

Following on from my previous post, we saw a lot of golden plovers on Samoa, 
where they tended to hang out on mown lawns.  

They all seemed to be in non-breeding plumage, which seemed to be a bit strange 
at the end of September.  Is Samoa on the East Asian flyway? (It is to the east 
of 95% of the dateline).

My question is whether Samoa a place where golden plovers hangout when they are 
siting out the northern hemisphere breeding season?
