New Freewheel Rattling

I recently purchased an Origin8 108 16 tooth freewheel on amazon and noticed that when i shake it in my hand, the bearings can be heard moving around and hitting each other. I have never put it on a bike, but I'm just taking precautions before I wheelie the bike and the freewheel breaks on me.

The old freewheels the bearings were oiled, I'm guessing this one isn't because of all the pawls inside which could be why it's noisy?

If it isnt oiled that's fine I can oil it up myself. I'm just wondering if anything is broken or if its supposed to be like that.
