Your dealer is clueless partly because Nissan never formally announced the heat resistant LEAF battery which people on MNL nicknamed Lizard.
They first communicated information about it in a dinner they hosted in Phoenix in August 2013.
Only MNL Nissan announcement about it being in 2015 LEAF was in June 2014 when they announced they would sell them as replacement pack with trade in of old pack.
Has slightly different chemistry with special trace amounts of chemicals that reduce capacity degradation rate.
Very good thread about battery testing and what can be significant impact of certain chemicals is at:
