I think the lens looks odd because the rubber focusing grip has been replaced. Notice how it's recessed inside the outer edges of the metal focus ring?

Yes I do see it. The Sigma's that I have come across have thick block style rubber focusing grip, that sometimes have the Sigma brand name molded into them. I am sure they needed to remove the Sigma branding, since its a Pentacon.

More over, I usually look at things like the text font and distance scale markings to compare to other lenses. Usually those details don't get changed for rebranding purposes.

A similar (but not identical) lens sold on eBay recently:

This one has the same YS mount, but a different (later) aperture ring with rubber grip. This style was also used by Sigma lenses of the period.
