Icon5 JDM H22A Engine Serial Confusion

Okay guys, I was looking into a new engine for my '97 lude, went to this shop the had an engine with the following serial code = H22A 1280438, so I searched online and found a database with the engine serial codes. What I got was that the JDM H22A SiR S-Spec started with the code 1280000, but what confused the hell out of me was that the engine I got the code from had a "black-top" or a black valve cover and I expected the JDM H22A SiR S-Spec to have either a Red/Blue valve cover. Within the database the JDM H22A SiR S-Spec also had another reference with an engine serial starting with 1290000, but the chassis code and the transmission code was different between the two, yet the transmission type was the same.

Do you guys think the person who probably owned the car changed it to a black-top (seems stupid), or probably that the between the two different types of code for the JDM H22A SiR S-Spec, there might be one with a "black-top" version? What do you guys think.

P.S. I attached the link the serial database below, and the pictures I took of the serial code.
