Dahon Ios S9 with no disc brake fixings

Hello all !

I have just bought a Dahon Ios S9 folding bike (the black one with golden hubs), sold on eBay as a 2014 model from Germany, and something hinted me. The bike came with no disc brake fixings (neither the post-mount one on the fork nor the IS one on the frame).
Yet, I had a look on Dahon's website, and the Ios S9 is equipped with disc brakes. Plus, all the Ios S9 pictures I've found on Google show it with disc brake, or V-Brake and disc brake fixings. The eBay page for my Ios S9 is the only one showing it with no disc brakes not PM/IS fixings.

I don't really care about disc brakes on a folding bike, but I wounder what model I actually have. Is it a genuine one? It has been delivererd in a Dahon box, it has a V-Clamp hinge, and it really looks like an Ios S9 bike. Except it does not have the disc brake fixings.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance.

This may help understanding.

Here is a German page from a seller who sell exactly the same Ios S9 I have : DAHON IOS S9 mod. 2014
Here is the Ios S9 in Dahon's website : DAHON Bikes:*Ios S9

Everything between the two is the same, except the disc brakes, and the cassette (I have a Sunrace, not a SRAM PG980).

And at last, here is another "sable" Ios S9, with V-Brakes and disc brake fixings : Faltrad Dahon IOS S9 2014 bei OnBikeX.de ? Alle Details und Spezifikationen

What are all those versions of the Ios S9?
