Browning BPR "Safari"

I have only one Browning rifle, a BPR 30-06. New, in box, tab on box says "Safari", buth there is no etching on the side of my rifle's receiver. Comparing other Browning "Safari" models, they all have etching on the side of the receiver, including the word "Safari", and maybe some other fancy pieces or work I have not noticed. Is my box marked wrong? Serial No. on the box matches the rifle. Or did Browning just not not etch these BPR receivers due to the aluminum alloy material, which I understand is different from the BAR. What is a Browning "Safari", or are all Brownings "Safari" models? Mine does not say "Mark I" or "Mark II" or anything other than Safari on the box. Nothing on the rifle. Any help appreciated.
