Weasel will become famous soon enough
The timestamp in the pictures there, the ones on top, are not the correct timestamps to look at... Those are for the otp rubber trim. The one you need to look at is the one on the back of the headlight housing.

That's the stamp you need to look for... not the ones on top of the weather strip.

Look at the headlights, they look almost brand new. Almost no hazing whatsoever Could have been refinished too but look at this one which is a 02, notice the condition of the headlights. Not making any assumptions here it just seems reasonable that they have been changed.


Pic for reference
