You should read the linked material thoroughly, especially the comments.
Jordan Kahn's supposition of November 19, 2012; is just that, a guess.
Nothing to back up his conclusion; "No one would go on the record at eBay, however.".
His last sentence is "We’ve reached out to Apple for verification.". That was four months ago, no follow-up.
A David Barstow, Mr. Kahn is not!
Posted comments shed a little more light on it. For instance...
"Geeksquad warranty... Bestbuy is behind"
You got it, just went to have a look at it, and immediately noticed Geek Crap warranty. If this were Apple, AppleCare would be listed.
btw, if it was actually Apple Inc., they would be required to collect Sales Tax for every state in which they have a physical presence or registered corporate agent.
My guess is they've contracted a third-party broker to unload old inventories.
