Default flyin miata seals. oem or not?

Id just call fm but they arent open today. Got a rear main seal and the installer from them. The new seal didnt come in a mazda parts bag and it looks different from the stock seal that came off my motor.

Based on many recommendations here and on miata.net id like to only use oem seals

So anyone know if fm is just selling aftermarket seals?

Not really sure, when I got my rear main and transmission seals, I got everything from Arlington Mazda.

It looks like Arlington has the rear main for $0.04 more than FM..

My rear main seal also came with the installer and the bag definitely looked aftermarket. It wasn't cheap either.
