Updated compatibility with newer model Genie openers?

The manual for the MyQ Hub states:

Compatible Garage Door Openers
Unless specified, the MyQ Smart Garage Hub is compatible with the following brands
of garage door openers manufactured after 1993 that utilize safety sensors:
• Chamberlain, LiftMaster, Craftsman and other Chamberlain manufactured garage
door openers
• Wayne Dalton 372.5 MHz
• Linear
• Stanley
• Genie/Overhead Door manufactured 1993-2015. Not compatible to openers manufactured after 2016. MyQ Smart Garage Hubs with a date code of 04/18 or later are compatible with all Genie and overhead door openers manufactured since 1996.

What does the last statement mean? It sounds like a hub manufactured after April 2018 is compatible with all current Genie models. Is this true and how can this be verified by the opening a newly purchased hub?

I just bought one from amazon but it was made on 12/17 so I know for a fact it is a paper weight.
