Yeah, maybe it's already had a Hyperglide freehub body transplanted onto it.
I found a couple 6208 hubs on eBay. They are listed as 6-speed. Shimano never offered 6-speed Hyperglide so these are Uniglide.
If there is a cassette on the hub, and it is fastened with a lock-ring, it is Hyperglide. If the last cog threads onto the freehub body, it is Uniglide.
If there is no cassette, take a look at the slots and tabs on the freehub body. If one of the slots is wider than the rest and one of the tabs is slimmer than the rest, it is Hyperglide. If they are all exactly the same, it is Uniglide.
