Perhaps they had some leftover 3.9L blocks they wanted to use up before the EF. Nobody would think to check motor when buying it new. Car manufacturers do some strange things at times.

Scratching . . . maybe the sticker is just for the welsch plug, or maybe they just didn't change the part number.
