Gray market Sigma - 3rd party seller "6ave" on Amazon?

Is it Amazon's policy to explicitly state whether a lens is gray market? If so, should I be able to return it to the seller without a restocking fee?

I recently purchased a new new Sigma 135mm 1.8  (click on link for listing) from a 3rd party Amazon seller "6ave" for $1,147.85.  The item is fulfilled by Amazon. It is currently in transit.

The price was a little lower than others. After some research I learned that Sigma does not honor warranty repairs for non-dealership lens sales. 6ave is not listed as an authorized Sigma dealer.

The listing does not specifically say whether it is an international/domestic lens. The seller's listing has a link to Sigma's policy for warranty in  the warranty section.  Does the seller have to disclose this information?  I also feel that this information was implied by linking Sigma's warranty information.  But, I may be naïve.

This my fault for not being more careful!
