SM-975F/DS in Settings, but SM-N976B in Download/Recovery

I bought an SM-N975F/DS from ebay specifically so I could root it and install LineageOS. But I've noticed that when I go to Settings in the currently installed stock firmware, it says model is a SM-N976F/DS, but when I go to Download or Recovery modes, it says the model is SM-N976B which is the 5G variant.

The boot splash screen also says "Note 10+ 5G", which I don't think an actual SM-N975F/DS is supposed to say because it's not a 5G model.

So did someone sell me a N976B phone just flashed with N975F/DS firmware, or something?
