Not sure but I do know that Wally had Remington make a couple of special runs for them. From what I was told by the sporting clerks they weren't cheapos or anything like that. If it's a ADL, it has to be a carry over and you might get it at a good price.
Maybe a call to Remington will shed some light. What does the clerk say?
It's NEW old stock. Call it a carry over or whatever else you wish.
Most ADLs of old had walnut stocks then they switched to plastic and toward the end a run was made with laminated stocks. Not sure if for some individual distributor or not. What real difference would it make? It's a Remington Model 700 ADL with a laminated stock whether it was a special run for a distributor a cataloged or non cataloged item makes no difference in how it was made or how it will shoot.
