Most "new" batteries take rides across the ocean in big stuffy storage containers which get hotter inside than your car. The internal cells are sitting near half-charge, good for transport/storage. Your shop probably didn't charge it wither, because they also want to keep the cells in the best state for sitting on the shelf.

So no need to worry, and even if it was 100% charged, one or two times won't hurt.

Out here in sunny CA my batteries in either a seat pack or triangle bag probably achieve an even higher temperature with no apparent problems.
