Date marks on tyres

I've just had 2 new tyres fitted on my van, Michelins.

They are dated 1219. That can't be right, surely?

I thought they were supposed to be marked with date of manufacture.

The markings don't look to have the same moulded height as adjacent marks.

I realise tyre manufacturers don't want to make tyres and have them sitting around in warehouses unused, but something like this makes me feel a bit suspicious. They must have been dated post manufacture. Should they be marked in the original mould process, I don't know?

Tyres were fitted by my mobile mechanic who I've been using for years so I don't doubt his integrity.

Any thoughts, folks?

I'm daft and proud of it.
