Should the code on the box match the one that's on the seal ?

Well I've got this phone, it came with a seal, there is a code on the seal and another code on the back of the box, those 2 codes aren't the same, and i was wondering whether or not they should be, because I suspect the phone I got a hold of is a dodgy one.
See codes: GH68-46370B (seal) and GH69-26688B (back of the box).
Those codes are in the two albums linked up.

In my case the imei matches the one that's on the box, as for the S/N it matches as well, but I'm now definitely sure my phone is a refurb as the plastic that wrapped the phone was very poor placed, this same plastic boasted a few fingerprints prior to me touching the phone for the first time, IT CAME WITH NOUGAT 7.0 right out of the box, with very minimal usage, the phone gets really hot, I definitely think I've been given a phone that's been used by someone else prior to me and passed as brand new, what a shame :/.

I'm definitely going to give the store a ring and ask for a new, fresh one, otherwise I'm asking for a refund and or suing.
