Lens S/N with USXXXXXX in front "pre-fix" of the number

Hi, I've noticed that some of the US purchased Nikon lenses have the "US" letters in front of the lens S/N, and others don't. For example the 28-300G and 105G Macro have the "US" letters in front of the S/N sticker in the back of the lens, and the 50 1.4G and 85 1.8G DO NOT have the US letters in front of the S/N on the back of the lens, do you know why?, all 4 lenses were purchased in the US as US market lenses.

The 50 1.4G and the 85 1.8G have S/N 30XXXX and 55XXXX and the S/N Database list the US numbers for both lenses as 60XXXX and 60XXXX, both lenses were purchased in the US at authorized Nikon resellers, thanks
