MSI B450M Mortar BIOS version question

Hello everyone, so my problem is a bit weird. I have the mobo: MSI B450M Mortar (non-MAX) https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B450M-MORTAR

 

Now after my motherboard was sent for repair (issue: display not coming though the PC seems to be running in background), the issue is apparently fixed but now the BIOS is showing that I've got an MSI B450M Mortar MAX mobo!  CPU-Z is also showing the same. Mind it, previously I had the normal non-MAX version. Probably they've installed a B450 Mortar MAX BIOS chip into my non-MAX motherboard when repairing.

 

Now the BIOS version they've installed after the repair is E7B89AMS.2F1 as shown in the BIOS setup and CPU-Z (picture in attachment). It's a B450 Mortar MAX BIOS as I see after googling. Other people seem to have installed it previously. But what I find most weird is when trying to update the BIOS from the official link: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B450M-MORTAR-MAX/support I cannot even find my BIOS  E7B89AMS.2F1 !

 

Closest to it in terms of naming is E7B89AMS.2F0 . In fact every BIOS I see for the Mortar MAX seem to be ending with 0 not 1 (i.e. E7B89AMS.1D0 or E7B89AMS.2G0) .  But I know that this BIOS E7B89AMS.2F1 exists because I saw online in forums and youtube that other people have installed it so it's not fake.

 

So I'm now confused for multiple reasons:

 

1. Firstly getting my mobo transformed from a non-MAX to MAX after repair.

2. Finding a BIOS installed that I cannot find on MSI's official website.

3. Other people I find online seem to be using that BIOS

 

Can someone help me explain any of these issues?

 

Thanks.

BIOS version could just be attributed to poor website maintenance by MSI, its not unheard of for internal teams to have newer versions not currently available to consumers.

Thanks for your reply. I've got my query reasonably answered in MSI forum.

Here's the link if anyone faces similar situation like me: https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?threads/msi-b450m-mortar-bios-version-questions.376659/#post-2133257
