Question About Nikon Mounts & Lens Versions

I ordered a Nikon 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S VR from 42photo.com yesterday and they called today to verify a shipping detail. As we were talking he wanted to make sure I wanted the European model not the domestic because that's what I apparently ordered. He let me know the European is a plastic mount and the domestic is a metal mount but also more expensive. He said he had a mint demo in there showcase that I could get for $1200. The new European I ordered was around $350 less. I have looked everywhere and can't find any information to backup what he told me. I said I definitely want the metal mount version. I don't think a camera store that was established in 1965 got to 2023 by being dishonest but it just bugs me a little that I can't find info on these two different versions of this lens.
